Upgrade Apache server in WAMP 2.5

Good Day,

My question is around the upgrading of Apache server. During a security scan it was brought to my attention that the current version of Apache that is wrapped with WAMP has multiple vulnerabilities and the fix is to upgrade to Apache server to v2.4.12.

I inherited the current server and have no real experience with Apache soI'm looking for steps that define the upgrade steps needed to upgrade the Apache server to v2.4.12 or higher. Would someone be willing to help?

Please and Thank you,

Wampserver 2.5 - Add Apache 2.4.12

- In the tree Wamp/bin/apache/create a new folder
which will be referred to as the ApacheDest

- Dowload Apache 2.4.12 from Apachelounge
Apache 2.4.12 VC11 X86
- Unzip the downloaded archive into a temporary folder. This gives a folder and two files
-- Win32-2.4.12 VC11 update 4 --

The folder Apache24\ wille be referred as ApacheSource

- From ApacheSource, copy all files and folders into ApacheDest

- Copy the file c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.9/wampserver.conf into ApacheDest
- Copy the file c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.9/conf/httpd.conf
over the file c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.12/conf/httpd.conf
- If you have VirtualHost:
Copy the file: c:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.4.9/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
over the file: c/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.4.12/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

--- Edite the file c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.12/conf/httpd.conf
Replace all occurrences of 2.4.9 by 2.4.12
Save the modified file

Start Wampserver
Swith from Apache 2.4.9 to Apache 2.4.12
- Wampmanager Icon-> Apache-> Version-> 2.4.12

Et voilà!
