How to disable display of Wowza Media Server version number

When you enter the following URL into a web browser Wowza Media Server returns the current software version number:

http://[wowza-ip-address]:1935
If you want to remove this functionality, edit [install-dir]/conf/VHost.xml and remove all occurrences of the following HTTPProvider:
 
<HTTPProvider>
	<BaseClass>com.wowza.wms.http.HTTPServerVersion</BaseClass>
	<RequestFilters>*</RequestFilters>
	<AuthenticationMethod>none</AuthenticationMethod>
</HTTPProvider>
