This server is running on an really old debian-OS server

Post by igytouqc » Thu Jun 27, 2019 8:07 am

Why is this server running probably on an really old debian server? Its Debian 8 from 2015.
Because of this really old debian server, also the used Apache version is really old. Its 2.4.10 from July 2014.

This all causes the issue, that modern security functions cant be enabled. HTTP/2, TLS1.3, ... all of that is not enabled on this server. Could you please update the server-OS?

You can wait 2-3 weeks and then install Debian 10 that would be released on 6 July 2019.

We did finally get around to upgrading to Debian 10. I agree it was super old, but it was stable, and Debian 8 was still in LTS so it was getting security updates.

Part of the delay of upgrading was going through all the websites that WineHQ hosts and making sure they work on the latest versions of PHP, Perl, and whatever libs and apis they require. That took a bit of testing on a private development server.
