Issue

  • What is the difference between httpd24-httpd.x86_64 and
    httpd.x86_64?
  • We want Apache to be installed company-wide. The yum search apache gives me: httpd.x86_64 and httpd24-httpd.x86_64. Which one to choose?
  • What are the differences between these packages:

    httpd-2.4.6-88.el7.x86_64
    httpd24-2.4.6-62.ep7.el7.x86_64
    httpd24-httpd-2.4.34-7.el7.x86_64
    
  • Which of these are primarily patched when security updates are rolled out for httpd?
