You cannot.  RHEL has certain packages support.  It typically doesn't support the latest packages.  If you need the latest version of Apache, you either need to install from source (easier) or make your own custom RPM (good practice).  You can also try to look for a more recent RPM for your version online.

What problem do you think you will solve by doing that?  The version you currently have from the Redhat repositories will be up to date with patches.  Any version you install by a different method will not be checked or updated.  Hosting companies generally do not update packages unless it has actually caused them a security problem.

Please refer RedHat support policy from the following URL.
https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/
https://access.redhat.com/support/offerings/production/soc.html

Regarding the production support, RedHat support all the packages available through RHN and DO NOT support, third party packages, custom/modified packages etc.  Hence you will not get support for any of your third party or custom compiled packages.


Please be informed that Redhat have their own version numbering which does not essentially match with the upstream version numbers. RedHat maintain different packages in  repositories which have relevant bug fixes and security enhancements created by the upstream maintainers.
