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.

Steps for upgrading Apache

1. Get the latest Apache 2.2 binaries for Windows from http://www.apachelounge.com/download/win64/ (http://apache.org for the 32-bit binaries)

2. Stop the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Web Server service

3. Rename the <uptime_dir>\apache directory to apache_orig

4. Unzip the Apache zip file in <uptime_dir> and rename to apache

5. Copy the contents from the apache_orig\conf directory to the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor apache conf directory (eg: C:\Program Files\uptime software\uptime\apache\conf)

6. Copy mod_xsendfile.so from the apache_orig\modules directory to the apache\modules directory.

7. Create tmp directory in uptime\apache directory.

8. If you are also upgrading PHP, skip to those steps now; otherwise, copy the php directory from apache_orig\ to apache\.

9. Restart the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Web Server service

Steps for upgrading PHP

2. Unzip the package and rename the directory to php.

3. Rename the original php directory to php_orig in the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor installation directory (eg: c:\program files\uptime software\uptime\apache\php)

4. Move the php directory from step 2 to the apache directory (eg: c:\program files\uptime software\uptime\apache\)
