Apache Version 2?

Recommended Posts

From the WordPress web site

To run WordPress your host just needs a couple of things:


    * PHP version 4.1 or greater

    * MySQL version 3.23.23 or greater


That's really it. We recommend Apache as the most robust and featureful server for running WordPress, but any server that supports PHP and MySQL will do.

TCH meets these requirements.

I run WordPress here as do others with no problems.  The servers are configured with Apache 1.3.x I believe.


What in WordPress would require Apache 2?


Well, if you want to include the name of your category in your permalinks, that won't work.


From http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks


"Note on using %category%: %category% does not work correctly with mod_rewrite in Apache versions prior to 2. If you are using Apache 1, do not use %category% in your permalink structure."

I've also got a problem that is hitting a roadblock of Apache 1.3's greedy regular expression engine and would be much more easily solved if we were using Apache 2.


Any plans to upgrade any time soon?


There are no plans to upgrade Apache at this time.
