Anyone know how to fix this?

What version of apache? And are you doing this as root or a user? Try as root if not already.

APR Package

Note that you need to update the "apr" package, not the webserver. To find out your version of the apr package, type

rpm -q apr

how to update depends on what package manager you are using on top of rpm. If you have apt installed, it would be

apt-get install apr

(yes apt woks great on redhat/fedora!) Others like rug or uptodate work similar. If you have a graphical interface for installing packages, just find apr there. You can also download and install the package manually, the command is

rpm -U the-package-file.rpm

but beware the dependency-hell

HTH
