  +  <P>
  +  RedHat Linux versions 4.x (and possibly earlier) RPMs contain
  +  various nasty scripts which do not stop or restart Apache properly.
  +  These can affect you even if you're not running the RedHat supplied
  +  RPMs.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  If you're using the default install then you're probably running
  +  Apache 1.1.3, which is outdated.  From RedHat's ftp site you can
  +  pick up a more recent RPM for Apache 1.2.x.  This will solve one of
  +  the problems.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  If you're using a custom built Apache rather than the RedHat RPMs
  +  then you should <CODE>rpm -e apache</CODE>.  In particular you want
  +  the mildly broken <CODE>/etc/logrotate.d/apache</CODE> script to be
  +  removed, and you want the broken <CODE>/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd</CODE>
  +  (or <CODE>httpd.init</CODE>) script to be removed.  The latter is
  +  actually fixed by the apache-1.2.5 RPMs but if you're building your
  +  own Apache then you probably don't want the RedHat files.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  We can't stress enough how important it is for folks, <EM>especially
  +  vendors</EM> to follow the <A HREF="../stopping.html">stopping Apache
  +  directions</A> given in our documentation.  In RedHat's defense,
  +  the broken scripts were necessary with Apache 1.1.x because the
  +  Linux support in 1.1.x was very poor, and there were various race
  +  conditions on all platforms.  None of this should be necessary with
  +  Apache 1.2 and later.
