I searched all over but could not find an easy way to upgrade Apache without recompiling. I installed httpd24 from this instructions but could not figure out how to replace httpd with httpd24.
Is there a way to update repositories and use yum to handle Apache upgrade?
Being a production server, I would like to keep things straightforward so that security patches can be automatically applied.
I was able to upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.1.0.
What prompted me to upgrade: I want the server to be up to date with security. I am also working towards a A+ score at www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/. I am currently at A. I see these 2 messages: This site works only in browsers with SNI support. and Client does not support DH parameters > 1024 bits. DHParameters (4096) is created in the server but...
SSLOpenSSLConfCmd DHParameters "/etc/ssl/certs/dhparam.pem"
...does not work in Apache 2.4.6 and I do not want to add it to site ssl certificate as it gets updated automatically by Let's Encrypt.
