You can use CodeIT repository to update the Apache server on your machine. They seem to have the version of the Apache. Here are the steps:

  • To add EPEL repository to use CodeIT's builds of Apache HTTPd, type the following command on the terminal. 
yum install -y epel-release
  • Use the following command that will determine the system version and will download the proper file:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d && wget https://repo.codeit.guru/codeit.el`rpm -q --qf "%{VERSION}" $(rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-release)`.repo
  • To install the latest Apache, use the following command:
yum install httpd
  • Restart the Apache to enable the latest version:
systemctl start httpd
  • Enable systemd to start the Apache automatically at boot:
systemctl enable httpd
