Now running Apache 2.4.39 and PHP 7.3.4

Posted at 01:49:40 AM by froems

I had neglected to mention I had upgraded to PHP 7.3.3 a month ago, too. The site is now running Apache 2.4.39 and PHP 7.3.4, and everything is running well.

I've also modified the site security settings to disallow TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, and also disallow some of the older and weaker cipher suites. Qualys SSL Labs gives the site an A+ security grade!

PHP 7.3.2 was compiled from source, OpenSSL 1.1.1b was installed as a package from slackware-current. I tested everything after installation and everything seems to be working fine.

Now running PHP 7.3.1

Posted at 04:51:37 PM by froems

I read that PHP 7.3 has quite a few performance enhancements compared to PHP 7.2. Although it's a little more bleeding-edge than what I would typically go with, I went ahead and compiled and installed PHP 7.3.1, and the site seems to be working just fine on the new software.

Now running PHP 7.2.14 and openssl 1.1.1a

Posted at 01:13:43 AM by froems

A new version of PHP was available, so I compiled and installed it and it seems to be working.

I also saw that the newer versions of Apache should be compatible with the openssl 1.1.1 line, so I installed the packages for the binaries and libraries for 1.1.1a and sure enough, Apache was able to start up with no errors this time.

Now running Perl 5.28.1

Posted at 02:24:42 AM by froems

I successfully upgraded Perl, which is always kind of a pain because it usually involves upgrading all of the CPAN modules, and it did this time. But it's all done and it seems to be working.
