There is many way to update.

1st get the updated RPM from RedHat web site and run 'rpm -Uvh httpd-version.rpm'

have a check here for using the RPM http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/ch-rpm.html

2nd download the apache source code from apache.org and do the binary installation.

./config
make
make install

are the standard procedure of using Binary installation

Have a check here for more info http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/install.html << for version 2.x
                                               http://httpd.apache.org/docs/install.html       << for version 1.3

I had to compile Apache with some specific options. So I found the newest http.src.rpm and installed it. You can find RPMs on rpmfind.net. Look for httpd from rawhide. These are the newest from RedHat. Go to /usr/src/redhat/SPECS. If you installed http.src.rpm you shoult find http.spec file there. Take a look at the file and alter it if you know what aou are doing and what you want. Then run "rpmbuild -bb httpd.spec". That will make you the newest RPMS on /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386. Just install them.
