I want to install apache on red hat linux 7.0 . i have got apache_1.3.31.tar.gz file.i also have apache rpm , but i want to install using tar file.
When i execute the command "rpm -e apache_1.3.12-25" it gives some error like it has dependencies with mod_ssl and something like that.
how can i uninstall the rpm file.
please help me with this problem and tell me the installation procedure.
a dependancy is a file that you need to continue the installation, if apache told you that it need mod_ssl, then download and install mod_ssl first, then what you did will work. the other method (depending on your distro) is an automated installer such as yum or apt-get. if you were to dl and install yum, then all you would have to do is type
and everything is taken care of for you.
