Hey guys,

OS/2 build is at
https://smedley.id.au/tmp/httpd-2.4.57-os2-debug-20230408.zip

I also need to update PHP 8.1 & 8.2

It would be good to know what versions people are running, so I can
focus my time most appropriately.

I know Lewis and Max are running 7.4.x - others?

Cheers,

Paul

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.57 Released

April 06, 2023

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project
are pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.57 of the Apache
HTTP Server ("Apache"). This version of Apache is our latest GA
release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and
represents fifteen years of innovation by the project, and is
recommended over all previous releases. This release of Apache is
a security, feature and bug fix release.

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.57 is available for download from:

https://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Apache 2.4 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.2 codebase. For an overview of new features
introduced since 2.4 please see:

https://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/new_features_2_4.html

Please see the CHANGES_2.4 file, linked from the download page, for a
full list of changes. A condensed list, CHANGES_2.4.57 includes only
those changes introduced since the prior 2.4 release. A summary of
all of the security vulnerabilities addressed in this and earlier
releases is available:

https://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_24.html

This release requires the Apache Portable Runtime (APR), minimum
version 1.5.x, and APR-Util, minimum version 1.5.x. Some features may
require the 1.6.x version of both APR and APR-Util. The APR libraries
must be upgraded for all features of httpd to operate correctly.

This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.2 API. Modules written
for Apache 2.2 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache
2.4, and require minimal or no source code changes.

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/VERSIONING

When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in mind
that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs (other
than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be
using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.

Please note the 2.2.x branch has now passed the end of life at the
Apache
HTTP Server project and no further activity will occur including
security
patches. Users must promptly complete their transitions to this 2.4.x
release of httpd to benefit from further bug fixes or new features.

I run the most recent debug version of php8 locally and on the steven
sever.

Dan and I run php 7.4.32 on the ns1 server. I intend to update this to
8.x as time permits.

Thanks,

Steven

(yum update openssl)

Hi Paul,

i've realized that i'm still running a PHP 7.4.32 build dated October 2022.

I guess there are newer and with more fixes, i went to github, but i'm not able to find
the link of the new build.

Let me know, please.

That would be my guess too. When enabled, intl.dll loads just fine here
and I can "see" the entry point in icuuc.dll.

I have libicu.pentium4.68.1-1.oc00 install here which is not all that
recent a build:

12-10-20 3:52 1,111,946 124 icuuc.dll

Revision: 68.01

yum update icuuc.dll

before:

27/12/17 11:31 1.016.680 124 a--- icuuc.dll

after:

10/12/20 12:52 1.111.946 124 a--- icuuc.dll

now apache starts and work
even with intl.dll activated


thanks a lot

massimo
