Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache httpd have it's own repo?

Regarding your reply "whether or not you actually "need" a more
recent version."

We ware wanting to use custom error pages for 404 errors while using
PHP-FPM with Apache. We found a possible solution, but it seems to require
2.4.10 Š

"As per Apache documentation, the SetHandler proxy parameter requires
Apache HTTP Server 2.4.10."
