Thanks to all who replied. Apache is up and running smoothly again.

The next task is to add the translator thingies for htdig so it can read
Word and pdf files...

No problems pending there though.

Thanks for your help guys,

I usually use "rpm2cpio <foo> | cpio --extract --make-directories" and
then take any files required from the created hierarchy.
