[CLOSED] recompiling httpd-2.0.40-21


Why is it that even though I have updated my system with the above version of httpd, when I do an rpm -q, it still shows the previous version?

I did an upgrade for httpd but it was not via rpm, does one not update the other? I have quite a log of issues with thr rpm which is why I used a tar ball. JF

when you do an rpm query you are looking for rpm installed packages tarballs are tarballs

well, this is just a thought, why dont you go inside apache's folders and try to stop the services. The one that is currently running should stop, on the other hand, the other one I assume will msg you that there is no service to stop or something.... do I make sense? anyway just an idea

NOT
<your prompt># http -V

type
<your prompt># httpd -V

if that doesn't work, try
<your prompt># rpm -qa | grep httpd

the | is required. It means send the output of the first command to the second command. grep means 'search for'. See 'man grep' for more info

Cheers,
P
