After 17 years of existence, the Apache HTTP web server is one of the most successful and dominant open source projects of all time. Today Apache is looking to extend that streak of success with the new Apache 2.4 web server release, marking the first major Apache web server update since the 2.2 release in 2005.

A key focus in the 2.4 release is improved performance which is delivered by way of multiple innovations.....

He added that the vast majority of modules do not require any changes to run under 2.4; they just need to be re-compiled and then the work is done.


That has not been my experience. I can name a few that have been broken by 2.4.

mod_security (twice)
mod_macro
mod_antiloris
mod_limitipconn
mod_auth_sspi
mod_perl seems borked as well.

most likely any module that get's informatiion from the scoreboard, deals with Authorization or uses log hooks is broken.

However, a couple modules that are no longer needed are
mod_rpaf (as far as I know via mod_remoteip)
mod_bw (replaced by mod_ratelimit)

A couple of modules have been, or *will be folded into to 2.4 in the near future are
*mod_fcgid
mod_proxy_html
mod_sed
mod_xml2enc
