httpd


Greetings,

I am installing Redhat 8, and I selected the follow to install:

admin tools
authoring and publishing
development tools
editors
kernel development
network servers
server configuration tools
system tools
text-based internet

I did not select web server. I'm curious why I have apache installed when I didn't select it. /etc/httpd exists, I can start httpd and verify it is running.

Maybe somehthing you selected wanted apache as a dependency and you said ok to resolving dependencies.

I reinstalled without network servers. Apache was installed again, also.

hmmm...I'm going to go with david_ross's explanation and say that something else your installing wants apache. Try uninstalling httpd:

rpm -e httpd

you will probably get an error message saying it can't uninstall httpd because certain programs are dependent on httpd. This might give you a clue as to what program(s) needs apache.

Personally, I think this is just a redhat thing. On my webserver I use redhat, and when I installed it I unchecked sendmail, I do not want an e-mail server on this box. I throughly go through each list to check or uncheck just want I want. I check the dependencies and resolve them before I continue with the install, but both times I have installed it sendmail gets installed and is started at startup. This has happened twice, once with 7.3, and once with 9. I just went in and uninstalled. It is a bit annoying though.
