Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
The currently supported version of Apache on CentOS 6 is 2.2.15.  To get a supported version higher than that, you would have to upgrade your system to CentOS 7.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Is this a physical or virtual server ?, If this is a Virtual Machine, I would build new.

If that's really important to you, I would build a new machine with CentOS 7 and then transfer the sites over.  I almost never do upgrades in place because there have been too many problems that way.
