We have installed httpd-devel on a few servers to facilitate installations, and now I read this:
"I removed httpd-devel and all of the dependencies that were installed with it... as I don't like to have a compiler on a webserver... as that can be used by hackers to compile their own kits if they find a way to exploit apache or some bad PHP code. The contents of /var/log/yum.log comes in handy for reversing things. "
Is this statement True? False? Maybe?
