Have you checked to see if it is actually running?  I rather expect
that it isn't.

I think RHAT distributes GUIfied tools to manage services started via
init.d, so that even if you are afraid of Unix, you should be able to
see what it's doing.

And it's quite unlikely that RHAT has packaged the very latest
version; the fact that they are numbering things independently is
quite irritating as it makes it more difficult to ascertain what
version it actually is.
