For security, some sites like to change the HTTP Server header that Resin sends back to the browser. The <server-header> tag inside the <cluster> block lets you change the header.

As part any HTTP response, Resin sends its name and version number in a server header, e.g. Server: Resin/3.0.14. Some sites prefer to change that header to a different value to hide the software version that's running the site.

resin.xml

<resin xmlns="http://caucho.com/ns/resin">
<cluster id="app-tier">
    ...
    <server-header>Foo/1.0</server-header>
    ...
   <host id="">
      ...
    </host>
</cluster>
 </resin>
