    Removing Apache

    I search through the forum ('removing apache') but I couldn't find a solution to my problem.

    I run RH Enterprise Linux WS version 4 and it does not come any default webserver. So I downloaded and installed from a TAR Ball.

    I installed Apache2 at '/usr/local/apache2'. I also instaledl PHP at '/usr/local/etc/PHP-5.1.1'. It to from a TAR ball.

    I issued a 'rpm -qa | grep apache'
    'rpm -qa | grep apache*'
    'rpm -qa | grep http*'

    just to make sure. Of course they return nothing since I didn't download through Red Hat.

    My idea is to issue a 'rmdir' command to delete both Apache and PHP. Once gone, I'd download the TAR Balls and reinstall in different locations.

    Does anyone see a problem with this plan?

    If you compiled from source, you can possibly go to the source directory and issue (as root): make uninstall

    I don't know much about apache or php but they could likely have configuration files in other places as well (i.e. apache/php may not be entirely contained in the directory).

    I'll have to download the TAR Ball again untar and see if uninstall works.
