where ServerTokens controls what kind of information being sent to the header. Options available for ServerTokens are(from apache docs):
Server: Apache/2.0.41 (Unix)
ServerTokens Full(or not specified)
Server: Apache/2.0.41 (Unix) PHP/4.2.2 MyMod/1.2
while ServerSignature is to allow configuration of a trailing footer line under server generated documents, such as error messages and mod_proxy ftp directory listings. Putting it to off will suppress the footer line.
Once added, restart or reload apache to activate the changes.
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
For nginx, add below line into your /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:
where this line of config will hide your nginx version number. Do not forget to restart or reload nginx, for the change to take effect.
# /etc/init.t/nginx restart
To check for the header, you can use curl:
curl -I www.foo.net
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Server: Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat)
where -I is for curl to grab just the http header.

In recent time, MariaDB 10 has been getting many new storage engines. We’ve seen TokuDB, CONNECT, SEQUENCE, SPIDER, CassandraSE for various use cases. For a long time, MariaDB shipped OQGRAPH, but it was disabled in MariaDB 5.5. It will make a come back as OQGRAPH v3 has been worked on actively by Andrew McDonnell. Keep track of this via MDEV-5319.
Another engine being worked on by Kentoku Shiba & team is the mroonga engine, which allows you to do full text search. It is optimised for CJK languages, and is supposedly very fast. To track this, follow MDEV-5222.
What this means is that from the start of the MariaDB project, the only engine that we have disabled and don’t include since 5.5 and greater is PBXT. That’s a pretty good record of having many shipping storage engines that have largely come from the community.

There was a question on Quora – Is Facebook considering ditching MySQL in favor of MariaDB like Google did? The best answer really comes from Harrison Fisk, so I’ll leave you to it to read. The older link made its way on social media about Wikipedia_$ mv MySQL MariaDB.
MariaDB 10.0 went into beta (with the 10.0.5 release). We made a 10.0.6 release shortly afterwards to fix some bugs. One cool thing to note — the blog post from Ian Gulliver at Google about how Google is making use of MariaDB today.
There is a new book out by Daniel Bartholomew: Getting Started with MariaDB. I fully intend to read & review it soon (you can also get this from O’Reilly’s Safari Bookshelf).
Navicat has announced Navicat for MariaDB for all your GUI needs on Windows, Mac or Linux. There is a free trial, or it costs in various prices for their non-commercial, standard or enterprise edition.
The MariaDB Enterprise Beta program started. I myself signed up for the beta to give it a spin. From what I gather most people that signed up qualified to give it a go. It is likely to go GA in mid-December. It is opensource software. Look at the getting started guide for more.
