Unhappy Uninstall Apache2


Hi: I installed Apache2.0.40 binary and would like to uninstall it now. How do I do it? I am running RedHat 7.1. And yes of course I am new to Linux, so dont have a clue about uninstalling programs.


Thank you

How did you install it? I think if you used rpm there's a rpm -u command to uninstall it. Try rpm --help to find the options.

There are a million diffrent types of "binary" installs. How did you install it? What was the name of the file? If it was an rpm file, then you would do almost like oulevon stated above:
rpm -e apache

This was the file I downloaded -httpd-2.0.40-i686-pc-linux-gnu-rh73.tar.gz.
I ran tar xvzf httpd-2.0.40-i686-pc-linux-gnu-rh73.tar.gz and from the source tree I executed the install-bindist.sh and apache was installed into usr/local/apache2.

Thank you.

rm -rf /usr/local/apache2

You may have to manually do some cleanup as well, unless everything is in that directory. Is there no uninstall.sh script?
