I compiled/installed a version of apache2 according to a guide, though the guide was made for 2.0.48, and the most recent (and the one I used) is 2.2.8.
It was compiled using a the following commands:
#./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 --enable-mods-shared=most
I now need to uninstall it to use the lamp-server package instead, but when attempting this:
sudo apt-get --purge remove apache2
I get this reply:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package apache2 is not installed, so not removed
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libkernlib1 libgraflib1 libg2c0-dev libpacklib1 g77 libpawlib2 libxbae4
libpawlib-lesstif3 lesstif2 cernlib-base g77-3.4 libgd2-xpm atlas3-base
kxterm libgrafx11-1 libpacklib1-lesstif paw-common libg2c0 libgraphviz3
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop.
so what does this mean?
How do I get apache2 removed again.
Or might the judgement actually be true, that apache2 isn't even installed in that sense -despite the initial procedures apparently working seamlessly- so I just can delete /usr/local/apache2 and install the lamp-server package instead?
Hope you can help me on this one ..
