Uhh....ok...re-read what you wrote, because you answered your own question.

You downloaded the .tar.gz file, not the .src.rpm file that needs to be built. You compiled FROM SOURCE CODE, but didn't install the new RPM file. Since you've only got the one RPM file in your database/installation, that's all you're going to see. You can either remove the existing RPM file, and use what you've compiled from source, download a pre-compiled RPM that is the latest version, or get the .src.rpm file, and build/compile from there.

What it sounds like you've done is not create a .rpm but compiled Apache using the source code. If that's the case, the .rpm listed won't change as a .rpm hasn't been used to install Apache.

Not RPM

Depending how you setup the paramateres during your installation from src not rpm you may have two versions of apache installed now.

You should check. You may be better off doing a make uninstall in your previous build, getting the lastest rpm from yum or building your own using, as mentioned above, the src.rpm. If you want the rpm database and your install to match.
