redhat compatibility upgrade question

    i have installed a fresh Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RedHat el4 2.6.9-5.EL) with the minimal installation option.
    i have installed all redhat updates with "up2date" and was skipping only the kernel updates.
    then i have installed Plesk 7.5.4 with the autoinstaller.
    plesk was installing all needed packages like apache, mysql, spamassing, qmail, libc.........
    everything is working great and plesk is running very well! (great experience)

    after the plesk auto installation, i have type "up2date -l" and become following new redhat updates available:
    Name Version Rel
    apr 0.9.4 24.5 i386
    apr-util 0.9.4 21 i386
    curl 7.12.1 8.rhel4 i386
    httpd 2.0.52 19.ent i386
    httpd-suexec 2.0.52 19.ent i386
    libc-client 2002e 14 i386
    mod_ssl 2.0.52 19.ent i386
    mysql 4.1.12 3.RHEL4.1 i386
    mysql-server 4.1.12 3.RHEL4.1 i386
    php 4.3.9 3.9 i386
    php-imap 4.3.9 3.9 i386
    php-mysql 4.3.9 3.9 i386
    php-pear 4.3.9 3.9 i386
    php-pgsql 4.3.9 3.9 i386
    postgresql-libs 7.4.8 1.RHEL4.1 i386
    spamassassin 3.0.4 1.el4 i386

    now, my question is following: is it safe to update this rpm-packages or does something break? do i have better to wait and use the plesk upgrader or can i go forward with up2date from redhat? do i run in a problem with my support contract? whats the commendation from plesk and whats your personal commendation?

    thanks for your help!

    best regards

    I would check to see if Atomic Rocket Turtle has a yum channel/repository for updates. Search these forums for more info on ART or check out his website at http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com
