Jump to: navigation, search

The server signature can give hackers information about what server you are running. So it is better if you turn it off.

Here is how to disable the server signature in Apache:

  • Edit apache2.conf with your favorite editor.
  • At the end of the file add these two lines:
ServerSignature Off
ServerTokens Prod
  • Restart the apache web server:
service apache2 restart

You are done, your server is now a little bit more secure :-)
