    By manually, do you mean as opposed to using up2date?

    You can always just go to the website for each (e.g. www.apache.org), download the latest and greatest, and go from there...

    you would probably want to learn to use the rpm command then.

    (man rpm is a first step)

    rpm lets you list installed packages, remove whichever you like
    install new ones and so on...

    Automated tools are made so you don't have to worry about dependencies
    (which can be a ***** sometimes)

    But installing by hand gives one an extra level of power =)
    Myself, I install by source....
