Disabling HTTP TRACE Method in Apache in CentOS 7.2.1511

To disable HTTP TRACE Method in Apache in CentOS 7.2.1511, enable the TraceEnable directive.

[root@localhost:~]# echo 'TraceEnable off' >> /etc/httpd/conf.d/httpd.conf

Restart your web server :

[root@localhost:~]# systemctl restart httpd.service

Check now that performing HTTP TRACE requests is no more allowed :

curl -v -X TRACE http://server_fqdn

If SSL/TLS is enabled :

curl -k -v -X TRACE https://server_fqdn

If you get a 405 HTTP response, then TraceEnable is on.
