Thanks for the advise - I will update both Redhat & Apache. But meanwhile I still want to do a test installation and would be very grateful if someone can clarify my doubts on installing binaries (please see the text below).
Many thanks - Hima

Apache 2.0.40 is over three years old. It would be better to upgrade
to Apache 2.0.55.

As far as I know, Redhat 9.0 is also well over two years old. Someone
here is sure to recommend going with a more-current operating system.
