How do I fully uninstall Apache2?


I totally f'ed up this installation, and need to start from scratch. What do I need to do to totally get rid of apache2?

I'm using debian, but didn't go with aptitude or apt-get to install.

Thanks,

Joel

Oh, and running make uninstall after a ./configure ion the correct .tar didn't work either. it came back with this:

Code:
root@webhost:~/httpd-2.0.54# make uninstall
make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.

It seems like, you did not run "make install" after running "./configure", so there is nothing to "make uninstall".

Huh. It is running though. I'm not THAT new .

I know I made a make install in order to get this running when I first installed it.

I did not make any assumptions that you are new to Linux. The error means that there is nothing to uninstall and if there was, "make uninstall" should have worked. Are you running "make uninstall" from the original build directory or were you trying to recompile from source, so that you can remove an already installed package? If so, you need to compile, make and make install so that the packages are removed.

I am really new though :P

I figured out it was too much of a pain to keep going like this, so a new install is in order, because this isn't the first thing I screwed up on the machine.

I appreciate the quick response, keep up the good work.

Thanks,

Joel

why didn't you just use one of the apt tools to install it? if you're using debian, i would strongly suggest installing it from apt-get (or aptitude, etc.) instead of compiling it yourself. there's really no reason to be compiling it since there are already debian packages that will install everything for you.

The install required special compiling. Something like this:

Code:
'./configure' '--prefix=/usr/local/php5' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs' '--enable-shared=yes' '--enable-static=yes' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-track-vars' '--with-xmlrpc' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr/include' '--with-kerberos=/usr/kerberos' '--with-openssl' '--with-mcrypt=/usr/local/libmcrypt' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql4' '--with-libxml-dir=/usr/lib'
I don't know if there was a way to do that with an apt-get/aptitude install.
