Uninstalling...anything, really.


So I want to uninstall Apache on Red Hat Linux 9. I was wondering if there was some magical command line way of doing this...rm rf?? Or does this just delete the files and not uninstall it...say, like with Windows.

Thanks

Do NOT just rm -rf something!!!!! It deletes files and/or directories. And you will not be able to get them back (or do you have a backup of your system ).

Uninstalling isn't all that easy.

If you installed apache with some kind of install tool (suse has yast, redhat has ???), there must be a way to use that tool to 'uninstall' as well.

you can use the rpm command, im not familiar with rpm stuff, do a 'man rpm'
and the answer will come out.

In redhat goto the main menu, then system tools i think then add/remove packages then go down untill u find server stuff and uncheck apache, if you Dled apache adn installed it, then u need to
rpm -e <name of rpm here> such as apache20031117.rpm or something along those lines. Good luck
