Description Mark Tompsett 2012-10-12 06:17:43 UTC
The code for finding the apache version may trigger silent warnings into the error log if something other than httpd is used as the web server. A simple 2> /dev/null should fix it.

This exists in master, 3.8.x, and 3.6.x

Bug 8910 - silent warnings triggered in about.pl

In order to detect the apache version, there are multiple
commands used. These may not all exist, which triggers error log
entries. By simply adding " 2> /dev/null", the errors are no
longer generated.
