Upgrade httpd version on linux server


Hello
I have a linux server.
The httpd version is :

httpd version - httpd-2.2.15-28.el6_4.x86_64
httpd-tools-2.2.15-28.el6_4.x86_64

I need to install mod_ssl.so module to have this apache server serve https requests.
When i do - yum install mod_ssl than it prompts for downloading but it also says that httpd and httpd-tools version will be upgraded to 2.2.15-29 and so.
I also have a dispatcher configuration on this server.
Could someone please let me know about the effects the newer httpd version will cause, since I have several vhosts Up and Running on the same server.

Thanks

just have a look at the change log - http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1156.html

basically, nothing will happen as far as you'll be aware.

Any idea about the effects it will cause to dispatcher configuration or is there any other way to get the mod_ssl module downloaded in /usr/lib64/httpd/modules without getting the httpd version upgraded.

again, just read the changelog. it's a trivial security fix to a part of the system you're unlikely to be using. You can certainly go google the exact package for the previous patch version, 28 as opposed to 29, but the difference is seriously trivial.
