Determine Apache level after upgrade

I upgraded an Apache 1.3x install to 2.2.3 on a Redhat 7.3 server. To do so, I compiled the source and just took all the defaults. The Apache 1.3x executable was in /usr/sbin so I renamed it and added a symbolic link to /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd then restarted the http server. Everything appears to work flawlessly, i.e. websites come up and work the way they're supposed to. This seems like it was way too easy to have been successful. Is there some way to verify that I'm actually using my new Apache 2.2.3 code? I thought that at one point in time I had downloaded a webpage that I could place on a server and pull up to get info on installed mods, configuration parameters and the like but I can't seem to find it again.

Perfect! Looks like it was that easy:

[root@imageserver2vm b12837]# telnet localhost 80
Connected to localhost.
