Are you root when you execute the commands? What makes you think they didn't work?

(rm -rf will work period as far as purging the configs from system goes.)

I don't not think you are doing what you think you are doing.

a clean apache install ( without a cms) will have you go to the apache default " coagulation " index . html page

what happens if you go to 127.0.0.1 ( or what ever your docroot is )

and can you answer these
what os is this ?
how was apache installed ( rpm , deb, arch.gz , ???? )
how are YOU CURRENTLY installing apache??? ( and myqsl,php,perl,...)

did you , and do you, have a .apache config folder in the normal user home folder ?

how are you setting httpd.conf ??? the settings ??

Hello,
if I go to the localhost nothing appear
I use debian lenny
apache was installed using the command apt-get install apache2
and I didn`t made any changes to the httpd file
I repeat..I just want to install apache2 with the default settings nothing else but if I remove it and install it again it keeps having the old settings
