I have a server running RHEL 5.7
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.7 (Tikanga)
# uname -r
The current version of HTTPD (Apache) is 2.2.3 :
# rpm -qa | grep httpd
Our security people are running scans for PCI compliance and are saying we need at least HTTPD 2.2.12. Our security people are also saying HTTPD 2.4 is out and we should just upgrade to that version. The problem is that HTTPD 2.2.3 is the latest release for RHEL 5.7 that can be installed using "yum update httpd" and our Red Hat subscription.
# grep "^serverURL" /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
serverURL[comment]=Remote server URL
I have searched and found a source RPM for HTTPD 2.4.3 (which then needs to be converted into an installable RPM using something like "rpmbuild"). The rpmbuild fails because of missing dependencies so I downloaded those dependencies. One of the dependencies is itself a package that is not available for RHEL 5.7 -- so here I go again.
Does anyone know of an already built HTTPD 2.4+ for RHEL 5.7 with all depedencies resolved (so this would be a repo if I am not mistaken) ?
Thanks for any help.
