    Hi Scott

    Plesk does not provide Apache. It's installed from OS repos.

    CentOS based on RH. RHEL 7: based on upstream v2.4.6 (c) https://access.redhat.com/solutions/445713

    Fixes are backported to v.2.4.6:


    # yum info httpd
    [...]
    ==================== Installed Packages ====================
    httpd-2.4.6-45.el7.centos.x86_64 installed
    * Thu Nov 3 12:00:00 2016 CentOS Sources <bugs@centos.org> - 2.4.6-45.el7.centos
    - Remove index.html, add centos-noindex.tar.gz
    - change vstring
    - change symlink for poweredby.png
    - update welcome.conf with proper aliases

    * Wed Aug 3 12:00:00 2016 Luboš Uhliarik <luhliari@redhat.com> - 2.4.6-45
    - RFE: run mod_rewrite external mapping program as non-root (#1316900)

    * Tue Jul 12 12:00:00 2016 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> - 2.4.6-44
    - add security fix for CVE-2016-5387
    [...many many lines...]
    changelog stats. 1 pkg, 1 source pkg, 138 changelogs

    ...and one more link: https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/backporting

    So, if your OS comes with Apache 2.4.6 then Plesk would run Apache 2.4.6 for clients.You can perform upgrade to Apache 2.4.26 only by manually recompiling the package. Please note that we do not provide an instructions regarding that process, and it is not recommended to perform such upgrade on production environment.
