version reporting

How do I turn off version reporting?

I just read a /. article that mentioned it and I'd like to know how to do it.

Also what commands do you use to see the version/stats/info of a server?

In Apache 2.0.##, you need to edit the following section of httpd.conf:
# ServerTokens
# This directive configures what you return as the Server HTTP response
# Header. The default is 'Full' which sends information about the OS-Type
# and compiled in modules.
# Set to one of:  Full | OS | Minor | Minimal | Major | Prod
# where Full conveys the most information, and Prod the least.
ServerTokens Prod
The 'Prod' setting will only identify the server as 'Apache', without giving any further info.

Check this link for Apache 1.3.## options to the ServerTokens directive.
