Removing apache rpm and install apache from source
I installed RedHat 6.2 with webserver and as a result, I got Apache Server installed by default. However, since the version is old i.e. 1.3.12-2, I decided to download the latest source from apache.org.
I then decided to first remove apache rpm by entering 'rpm -e apache-1.3.12-2'. When I did so, it came back and said:
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
webserver is needed by mod_perl-1.21-10
webserver is needed by php-3.0.15-2
I think I can force it to remove it but I don't know if this would cause any problem if later I installed apache from source. I know I don't need php but I may need mod_perl.
What should I do?
