Hi,

I have a RHEL5 64bit box and an active RHN subscription, however, the RHN system does not have any updates for apache past v. 2.2.3. How can I use the rhn pup updater software or yum to select and install a newer version of apache?? many thanks.

I would suggest installing this from Source by downloading the packages from here.

The RH update mode is to maintain stability versus maintain versions current.
You could manually download an RPM with the version you want or compile it on your own and install at which point you will have to keep track of the changes/security events and update the installed version.
The other option is to get to the newer level of RH 6 during the system upgrade cycle since there is no direct OS upgrade path from 5 to 6.
What features do you need from the newer ones that do not exist in the 2.2.2?

I need these to fix some security issues my acunetix web scanner is reporting.

I added the atomic , webtatic and epel repositories to my yum configuration but I always get the below error whatever I do:

Missing Dependency: libltdl.so.3 is needed by package php-mcrypt-5.3.10-5.el5.art.i386 (atomic)

however, both libltdl.so.3 and libltdl.so.3.1.4 are present under /usr/lib64 so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong .(

The version that it is looking for might not be the version you have. What version of php do you have?
What is the report what is the report based on? The version of the app or a specific test that your server is not passing?

The module you are adding are php related and would little to do with apache.
You may have to compile the modules yourself using the installed versions.
See if the repositories you've added have nearer version of php to match the php-mcrypt you need/want.

I removed all php components using yum and re-installed them and that fixed the issue. I also had to use the remi repository. Thanks for your help.
