i also use red hat 8.0 and i opted to install apache myself. i installed 
apache with php support. here is how i installed it

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-module=all or 
/usr/local/apache2 for apache 2.0.xx

this configures apache with all Loadable modules you can also use 
--enable-module=most. this also sets the install path to /usr/local/apache.

afte that all you do is type

#make install

all commands must be run from the directory in which you extracted the 
apachex.x.xx.tar.gz archive. if you would like to compile apache apache 
with php and mysql support check this article out. its really easy to 
follow step by step instructions.

hope this helps
