Hi Folks,
How do I tell what version of Apache I have on my machine (v1.3 or v2.0)?
I'm using a MacBooko Rro.

Cheers,
S.

You should be able to right click (or control click) on it, then select get more info. From there it should tell you. I think you have v2.0 as my Intel iMac has it, just looked at it lastnight.

I don't think he knows what he's talking about... Apache isn't an "application" in the traditional sense.

I believe Apple has traditionally installed 1.3, but to check fire up the server from System Preferences. Then navigate to a made up page. It'll give a 404 and it should tell you what version of Apache you're running.
Try using this address: http://localhost/thisistotallymadeupanddoesntexist.html
I gives me "Apache/1.3.33 Server at kelly.local Port 80"

For an example, see my server running Apache 2: http://armin.sytes.net/blah.html

cheers

No, I was thinking he had the folder "of" Apache in front of him/her and wondered how to "get" info on it (Apache) as I got a set-up page looking through some stuff to do html with using Apache. Didn't mean to confuse anyone just thought it was a newbie question in the simplest form :)

And if you don't get any result or "command not found", you have Apache 2. (apache2 -v)... I still don't understand what drove them to change the process name... :rolleyes:

Well, unless you implicitly downloaded and installed apache2, then you will have some version of apache1, as that is the only version that comes built-in with any version of OS X.
