    When I visit:
    http://www.whois.sc/site-on-my-server.com

    I find this:
    Server Type: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix) mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4 PHP/4.3.10 FrontPage/5.0.2.2634a mod_ssl/2.8.21 OpenSSL/0.9.7a

    Can I hide that info for whois.sc and for hackers? How?

    Thanks

    Look in your httpd.conf and change the ServerTokens setting to 'ProductOnly'. Restart apache. That's as little information as you can easily turn off sending without doing something like custom recompiling.

    I should also note that doin that means that WHM won't be able to tell the version of apache you're running... nor for all the modules, etc. So if there's a problem with modssl or apache or something, WHM won't warn you! You'll have to manually keep up with the updates.

    I'd suggest you read up on these forums about this a bit more. Do a search for ServerTokens.
