Subject Re: Uninstall from RH Linux???

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??

I did the below said process and found by running the same command that the packages has been

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 command
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
