    Received complaint from client about the 500 error. Looked into it last night. Tried updating but it was not availalbe.

    Thought I would be doing the alternative methods today.... but... overnight 2.4.41-4ubuntu3.6 was installed automatically! 

    Problem solved.

    So I guess they've released the update now.

    Updated trough console without issues today after performing the "sudo apt-mark unhold apache2" command. Marking this issue as solved for now.

    Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS
    Not working

    It says "All packages are up-to-date" but my Apache files are NOT updated, they're still apache2 2.4.29-1ubuntu4.17 and not .18 as it should be. I've tried executing "sudo apt-mark unhold apache2" and it says "apache2 was already not hold", which is true. I still can't see/install the latest patch, how do I get it on Plesk?

    This is what I see when looking for Apache files:

    This could have been prevented. All my sites were down, and I thought my server was supposed to be solid. My ambulance bill due to heart attack will be forwarded to Plesk.

    I see so many different versions in posts.
    My Plesk runs on Ubuntu 18. Currently these files for Apache2 are running and have status up to date.

    Can anybody tell me if these are the correct files? I have the opinion "If it ain't broken, don't fix it"
    Thanks in advance.

    Was terrifying on tuesday with many high load websites down. Thankfully your solution was simple and worked.

    Here the article now says apache has fixed this. Does this mean we should all run sudo apt-mark unhold apache2 so that apache starts updating again?

    With Ubuntu 20 it updates automatically. Perhaps sudo apt-mark unhold apache2 is necessary if you've put it on hold. In normal circumstances it should not be necessary, but it won't hurt. Unless you've put it on hold to avoid the bad update... then you could also wait a few weeks. But don't forget to unhold it for security reasons.

    Tjerk tells us Ubuntu 18 is not updating to the latest patch yet. Perhaps someone can confirm that?

    Then this problem is fixed partially.

    Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS is still updated to the old version .17 instead of .18. Is there any chance that Plesk fixes this issue?

    Luca B you should check your apt sources. These should point to the Ubuntu repositories. Some providers use their own repositories in the templates, which are not always up-to-date. This is not a Plesk problem

    Well it may not be but I am stuck and I don't want to make things even worse. I hope they will update the sources soon.

    My new Digitalocean droplet, and Plesk just shows Fast CGI option.

    Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS
    PHP 7.3.30 or 7.4.23 both didnt work

    Then the site works again, but it's on and off, down 1-2 hours almost every day and not as stable as usual.
    How to check what's the error and how to fix it? Thanks

    Nathanaël Langlois - if you put the apache2 updates on hold, then yes, you can unhold them and either issue the updates and upgrades manually or wait until the next auto upgrade happens. For myself, I did the manual option so I could immediately see the results.

    apt-mark unhold apache2
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade

    Minh Buii - I suggest reading through the comments of others. I do recall others also had issues with DigitalOcean but they found solutions. As there is already a permanent fix for it with a further apache2 release, then there should (in theory at least) be no need to go for the temporary fix of adjusting the proxy settings.

    example DO comment https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4407366133906/comments/4407395692050 

    example Proxy settings comment https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4407366133906/comments/4407400206226 

    For the actual error itself, for me it showed in the standard error log and gave the error: AH10292, which then led me to this Plesk thread.

    Hi,

    Same issue again this morning (19 Oct 2021)!!! Workaround by Kovac worked again:

    1. change to "FPM Application served by nginx" instead of Apache, in "PHP settings" for the domain.

    2. in "Apache & nginx Settings" switched off "Proxy mode".

    HOWEVER: It cannot be the case that the server shuts down again! Plesk needs to get updates properly and safely done! Makes sure to check the issue!

    Hi There,

    Regarding this issue, I followed TechTheBoy instructions on September 28th. 

    For reference:

    1) Go to PHP Settings

    2) On the top of the page where it says "run PHP as" select "FPM application served by nginx"

    3) Scroll all the way to the bottom and click Apply and OK

    4) Now, Click on Hosting and DNS

    5) Click on Apache and nginx Settings

    6) Scroll down to nginx settings

    7) Uncheck "Proxy mode"

    8) Hit Apply and OK

    I went to see my packets and they are all up to date today and I imagine also Plesk latest updates.

    I tried reverting to previous setting via Plesk panels and site goes down right away if I set the proxy mode again.

    Leonid Gukhman   Please advise what to do to have a permanent solution?

    thanks

    Pablo

    Leonid Gukhman & TechTheBoy

    Hi, I checked I am already up to date with apache2 2.4.41-4ubuntu3.8 (Ubuntu for focal-updates by Ubuntu)

    So I don't understand why I still get this Internal Server Error when I try to revert to default config.

    Any recommendations?

    thanks

    Pablo
