      Are you sure about that?

      You said openssh and openssl - not Apache.

      I believe the Apache supplied with RH9 is version 2, you seem to have
      messed things up by installing a version 1 Apache which probably isn't
      what you were meant to do.

      There are two ways to proceed now, either version 1 of Apache and
      version 1 of mod_perl, or version 2 of Apache and version 1.99 of
      mod_perl (which is what they're calling version 2 of mod_perl at the
      moment - don't ask :).

      Either way (versions 1 or 2), get the latest sources of both (Apache
      and mod_perl) from the appropriate websites. I would recommend that
      befre installing them you install Perl 5.8.3 first unless you have
      already upgraded your Perl, because there are known issues with the
      Perl that comes with RH9.

      Get back to us if you need more help.
