I didn't find anything in the FAQ's about uninstalling Apache. Since I'm somewhat of a noobian to
linux I wanted to make sure that I'm doing the right thing. I have a couple of questions first.
Here are the details:
I'm running Linux/Mandrake 9.0
Kernel version: 2.4.19-16mdk
Apache files and modules installed:
rpm -qa | grep apache
I'm brand new to Apache and web servers in general. I want to learn how to set up my own web site
using Apache as the web server.
Because I'm somewhat new to Linux/Unix and the Apache web server I decided to install Apache using
RPMDrake which basically installs the files and directories and everything for me.
The problem is that when I follow any tutorials out on the web concerning the setup, installation
and configuration of Apache, the path conventions used don't even come close to where my Apache
files and directiories are located.
For instance, the tutorials always reference /usr/local/apache or /usr/local/bin/apache. Basically
being a noob I'm having a hard time following and tutorials because the paths for files and
directories concerning Apache are in totally different places/paths, and don't have the same names
compaired to how this was installed on my PC,using rpm. This is what my paths look like:
rpm -qil apache-conf-1.3.26-3mdk
If I were to uninstall Apache via RPMDrake and reinstall using source code via "./configure",
"make" & "make install", would this place files/directories/modules into the same paths that are
described in the tutorials online?
If installed from the source and wanted to uninstall at some point, what would be the proper way
to uninstall Apache and all of its dependentcies?
Any words of wisdom are appreaciated.
