Try clicking in one of the links that points to your own webserver(in 
the mirror of course), and then
click the Apache Server, u must be redirected to your own mirror, not to 
httpd.apache.org, that happens
only when u click Apache Server from the Mirror Home... try it... i was 
thinking the same a few days ago
but now i'm realizing that isn't like that... try it...
