Apache 2 Removal
I can't find how to remove apache from anything other than a debian-based distro...

I am running Mandriva 2006 free. I did a stupid and set the directories very very poorly. I tried 'make uninstall' in the /var/www/apache2 directory (and many sub-dirs) but nothing. it just says:

"make: *** No Rule to Make Target 'uninstall'. Stop."

This doesn't help me. ;) I'm about to reinstall the OS but I shouldnt have to. plus, id rather learn it for the sake of learning the os. thanks, any help is much appreciated.

How was it installed.. ? I would think you would use the urpmi tool to remoe it..

urpme apache2

For each distro check what package management utility they use, and check the docs..

blah packages, i did a source install. im guessing this complicates things? I tried 'urpmi' and 'urpme' and bash says "command not found". wtf? hmm, any thoughts? thanks again!

Again uncompress your source tarball in a directory and then use this command in that directory :


make uninstall
You may need to run ./configure first to create a Makefile. So if you face any problem, first run './configure' in that directory and then run 'make uninstall'
