Centos 5.4: RKHunter Warnings and Security

I have a Centos 5.4 server with Plesk 10.3 installed. I'm getting RK hunter warnings. The server is a new build and so I think the config file is incorrect but I'd like to check:

1: Who has logged in/out of my server recently. (SSH & FTP)
2: What the checksum for apache should be and actually is.
3: Is there any strange traffic in/out of my server.

Plus anything else that would be advisable.

Can you tell me how?

All these warning should be more explicitely explaned in the /var/log/rkhunter.log

    Checking for enabled xinetd services                     [ Warning ]
    Checking for hidden files and directories                [ Warning ]

    Checking version of Exim MTA                             [ Warning ]
    Checking version of Apache                               [ Warning ]

rkhunter can be run to keep track of some site specific info, but (--propupd)  whcih records various info, but if you upgrade f.e. exim then the exim changes.

Please check the messages in the /var/log/rkhunter.log for specific. differences.
