    Apache Upgrade Problems (2 versions?)


    Hello all,

    I just installed Fedora Core 4 which includes Apache 2.0. I wanted to upgrade to Apache 2.2 so I downloaded the new tar file and verified it with gpg just as the Apache website said.

    After that I ran:

    - tar -xz -f httpd-2.2.0.tar.gz (this extracted the files to httpd-2.2.0 in the same directory)
    - ./configure
    - make
    - make install


    Ok here's my problem. The old version is still installed. Is there a way to remove it or just deal with it? Also, as it is now, I extracted the httpd file to a directory called /temp (which I made). I'm not sure where all the files are for the old version of Apache, so I have no idea where to put the new ones.

    In the services GUI, is there anyway I can have the services menu point to the new httpd rather than the old, or is it already done? Is there a file that dictates what services and the paths to the executables?

    dpkg ???

    I was reading another post about removing packages. Would this help in my situation?

    dpkg --purge <package name>

    If so, how do I find out what packages I have installed on my Linux box?

    Thanks

    dpkg is a debain tool

    I believe for redhat/fedora you would use

    #rpm -U <packagename>

    or if your using apt
    #apt-get remove <packagename>
