apache problem and losing hair i dont have


Learning and using RH 9.

When i installed RH i installed the apache server/httpserver withit

to learn the ins and outs of apache i found instruction on how to download , compile and install apache.

I uninstalled apache that was installed but not sure if i was %100 successfull but went ahead with the installation anyways...

according to the installation it was successfull.. i was ablel to stop and start installed to the /wwwroot.
when i tested it its going back to the original configuratoin or where i setup the test page the first time i installed apache and configuration..
how do i tell it to take the new configuratoin...

this is driving me nuts

not even sure if its loading it twice

After you uninstalled the packaged one, and installed the source, you should check the httpd.conf to see where the DocumentRoot is pointing and such. That's the directive(s) that control where to look for configs and the / of the httpd server.
