As Internet grows so does the different threats you can be exposed to, especially if you like me are running your own Internet services. I will not claim that I'm an IT-security expert in anyway, but there are a few things I still would like to share. The worlds leading webserver today is Apache. Apache runs under different Linux distros and Windows. Together with PHP and MySQL you have a powerful platform to build your own webapplications on. To develop web solutions on Apache is one thing, but putting them to work in the real world is another thing.
Drupal version 8.4.5 requires Apache version 2.16 or greater, alternatively module mod_rewrite.so must be enabled and configured in the webservers configuration. When installing Drupal version 8.4.5 or greater the installation get stuck when checking system requirements. The following errormessage appears: "The reported value is Apache 2.14, to run Drupal without mod_rewrite, a minimum version of 2.2.16 is needed." But eventhough you enable mod_rewrite.so the installation tends to get stuck.
