Subject Re: Uninstall from RH Linux???
Date Sun, 14 Jul 2002 14:55:34 GMT

  No i just want to check whether its removed from my server or not. Is it not the right approach
to check the existence of the webserver. If no then how can i check whether its really removed
or not?

  Ok, but if you are trying to uninstall it, then why are you trying to run it again?  Are
you doing an upgrade
  from 1.x to 2.x??

      When i run rpm -e apache---- it gave 
      error:package apache is not installed

      when i run /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start -- it started running.

      May i know where i went wrong in uninstalling. I tried installing thro a httpd-2.0.36.tar
on RH Linux7.2 server.

      Here is the information that I was able to find with a search of google.  The rpm -e
      I have seen in a couple of places.  This should help.
      first login as root.
      shutdown the httpd
      /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop (for default RH rpm install)
      may also be: /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl stop
      if you used an rpm type:
      rpm -e apache
      or possibly:
      rpm -e apache apache-devel
      There may also be other packages that depend on a webserver that you will
      have to remove first.
      if you installed from the source, just remove /usr/local/apache (or wherever
      your install is), but remember that your site source may be located in
