comment Unable to access Apache
Can you access the server from the machine itself? What happens if you do curl localhost on the server?

@DeerHunter I am not the sysadmin of this machine, I am just an ordinary user. The sysadmin is a friend who lets me use the server to run a site of mine. He deleted Python and now things are bad. My site is actually fine because it doesn't depend on Python. I installed a generic Python 2.4 from source which fixed the Django sites, but yum is still not happy.

What do I match with what? What exactly am I looking for in a CentOS repository? I really have no idea what I am doing with this. I am very desperate. If I go into a CentOS repo and download the RPM's I get the exact same error.

I tried that RPM command, it gave me the exact same error.

Sorry. I updated my question to reflect my version of CentOS, which is 5.8, so the version isn't the problem.

I do not have the install media. I tried installing the RPM from that link, which has resulted in a strange new problem. I've edited my question to include the new problem.
