The Apache and PHP builds included with Uptime Infrastructure Monitor are updated with each major version change of Uptime Infrastructure Monitor. Occasionally, Apache and/or PHP release security updates that you may need to satisfy your security requirements. In those situations, you will need to manually deploy an updated version of Apache and/or PHP.
Because these newer releases of Apache and PHP have not been tested by the IDERA QA department, no guarantee can be given that they will work completely as expected. However; if issues are experienced, moving back to the original, bundled Apache and PHP is easy enough.
Note: When downloading newer binaries, be sure to choose x64 binaries for Uptime Infrastructure Monitor 7.1+ installs and x86 binaries for older releases of Uptime Infrastructure Monitor.
