How to hide PHP version Information

You should hide php banner information from being displayed so the attackers are not aware of what version of PHP version you are running and thus making it more difficult for them to exploit any system holes and thus making vulnerability scanners work harder and in some cases impossible without knowing banner information.

How To:
Modify php.ini
Change the expose_php line to: expose_php=Off
Notice: You may need to restart Apache.
