Watchout for latest RHEL/CentOS if you use kerberos authentication and apache
If you use kerberos authentication and allow the use of basic authentication fallback (KrbMethodK5Passwd on) there is a bug that will cause apache server crashes if you upgrade past 5.5 base for RHEL or CentOS. Downgrading to the 5.5 base versions of nspr, nss-tools and nss will stop the crashes.
This bugzilla describes the problem in detail and indicates that a fix is not planned: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug...iple&id=633519
