Aem Dispatcher - Upgrade Apache

Avatar

Level 3

Good morning,

Apache Server version 2.4.35 is present on the Dispatcher machine.

For security reasons I would like to upgrade to a later version.

It's possible ? Is there a guide?

Thanks

Dispatcher version does not depend on AEM version. That said, you need to use the updated dispatcher module if you upgrade apache.

 

Example: Dispatcher version 4.2.3 works with apache 2.4.*

 

Check for more details:

https://www.adobeaemcloud.com/content/companies/public/adobe/dispatcher/dispatcher.html

 

1. Check the apache version by using

  #httpd –v

2. Run the below command to update the version

  # yum update httpd

  #apt-get install apache2

3. That’s it! again check for the version of apache post-upgrade #httpd -v

Hi @robertol6836527 ,

It depends on two things

  1. What version of dispatcher module you are using.
  2. Which OS you are using.

    Platform Support Level
    Apache httpd 2.4.x [1,2]A: Supported
    Microsoft IIS 10 (Internet Information Server)A: Supported
    Microsoft IIS 8.5 (Internet Information Server)Z: Not supported

For more details please visit below few links

Hope that helps!

Regards,

Santosh

Is it possible only to update the Apache server and not the Dispatcher module?
I would like to avoid redoing all the configurations.

How can I check the dispatcher version?
Thanks

@robertol6836527 Yes it is possible! To confirm that please identify what version of dispatcher module you are using and check whether Apache 2.4.35 is supported based on above link I have passed.

Good morning,
On my machine there is the Apache Server version 2.4.35 and the Dispatcher module version 4.3.3
For safety I would like to update the Apache Server to version 2.4.54.
Is it possible to upgrade the Apache Server without upgrading the Dispatcher version ? Is there a guide?
Is there a link where the compatible Apache Servers are indicated for each version of the dispatcher? In the documentation, version 2.4 of the Apache server is always indicated.
Thanks
