One of the better places for newer releases of things like
php/mysql/httpd that are packaged for RHEL (and re-spins) is the IUS
repository, <https://iuscommunity.org/>. While I'm seeing newer
releases of httpd for RHEL-6, I don't see any for RHEL-5, but you
might want to ask. Of course, you could build an RPM from the httpd
source, (or build/install from source outside of the rpm manager).

Note, RHEL-5 is in the last ~1.5 years of its 10 year life, so you
may want to consider moving to -6 or -7.
