Support status guide
End of life (EOL) is the end of a product’s useful life. When a product reaches the end of its life cycle, the manufacturer no longer supports it. The following table explains the different phases of a product’s lifecycle. Testing status is when the product is initially released and EOL is when product support is no longer offered. The time between these two points is the support timeframe.
The software is not yet publicly available. It is in testing phase i.e., alpha, beta, release preview etc.
The software is actively supported by the vendor.
The software will soon reach its end of life. You need to look for upgrade or migration options. The software will automatically go into phasing out status 2 months before end of life.

The Apache HTTP Server versions have no extended or security support. However, they do have active support which typically ranges from 10 to 12 years.
There is no predefined era of support for each Apache HTTP server version. However, The Apache Software Foundation, who own the Apache HTTP Server software, announces the retirement of each version with sufficient time for the users to shift to the latest version.
