Windows instructions (manual)

To upgrade Apache HTTP Proxy to the most recent version, follow the steps below.

1.Back up the following files:

C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\conf\httpd.conf

C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\bin\password.file

C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\bin\group.file

2.Stop the ApacheHttpProxy service by opening an admnistrative command prompt and executing the following command:

sc stop ApacheHttpProxy

3.Download the Apache HTTP Proxy installer file from ESET download site and extract its contents to C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\. During the extraction overwrite the existing files.

4.Navigate to C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\conf, right-click httpd.conf, from the context menu and select Open with > Notepad.

5.Add the following code at the bottom of httpd.conf:

ServerRoot "C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy"
DocumentRoot "C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\htdocs"
<Directory "C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\htdocs">
 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
 AllowOverride None
 Require all granted
</Directory>
CacheRoot "C:\Program Files\Apache HTTP Proxy\cache"

6.If you set a username/password to access your Apache HTTP Proxy (Apache HTTP Proxy installation topic), replace the following block of code:

<Proxy *>
 Deny from all
</Proxy>

with this one (found in your backed-up httpd.conf file you backed up in step 1):

<Proxy *>
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "Password Required"
 AuthUserFile password.file
 AuthGroupFile group.file
 Require group usergroup
 Order deny,allow
 Deny from all
 Allow from all
</Proxy>

If you had other customizations made to your httpd.conf file in place in your previous installation of Apache HTTP Proxy, you can copy over those modifications from the backed-up httpd.conf file to the new (upgraded) httpd.conf file.

7.Save your changes and start the ApacheHttpProxy service by executing the following command in an administrative command prompt:

sc start ApacheHttpProxy

8.Test the connection to Apache HTTP Proxy by accessing the following URL in your browser:

http://[IP address]:3128/index.html
