What version of Apache to use?


I am using Centos 6.5, and the default Apache version is 2.2.15. I have a basic webserver, and don't need any crazy clustering, etc. Should I stick with 2.2.15? What are the benefits of 2.4.x?

Code:
[root@michaels conf.d]# httpd -v
Server version: Apache/2.2.15 (Unix)
Server built:   Aug 13 2013 17:29:28
[root@michaels conf.d]#

This version is fine. It has all the security fixes from apache backported into it. It's stable.

If you want a list of benefits of 2.4.x you can go through the release notes,.. which are many.

Thanks. Is it possible to list the top three?

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/new_features_2_4.html

The only three 'program enhancements' are:

Quote:
fcgistarter
New FastCGI deamon starter utility
htcacheclean
Current cached URLs can now be listed, with optional metadata included.
Allow explicit deletion of individual cached URLs from the cache.
File sizes can now be rounded up to the given block size, making the size limits map more closely to the real size on disk.
Cache size can now be limited by the number of inodes, instead of or in addition to being limited by the size of the files on disk.
rotatelogs
May now create a link to the current log file.
May now invoke a custom post-rotate script.
Unless there is something specific you need from it, it is best to go with the current stable 2.2 release. It's what is included in most enterprise linuxes.
