Uninstall Apache + Others


I still have the packages from the 9.1 full install. I'd like to remove anything apache and all the other packages that work for apache like php(if that's installed), I assume MySQL also works with apache, etc.

I'd like to then Install apache 2.0.49 from source and reaquire the newest versions of such packages I"m uninstalling.

I hear apache is good. I don't think complete secureness is possible with anything like this. Though, does apache have good security or should I look elsewhere for a server?

I'm going to be using this server for a php-website, php-forums, e-mail, and ftp. This is also my first time configuring apache, etc. This'll be a big project for me. What are your suggestions? "Just read the manuals"?

pkgtool

from a terminal as root will allow you to select packages for removal. as far as apache is concerned the documentation at the website is very thorough.

http://httpd.apache.org/docs-project/

good luck.

Step 2. Extracting

Code:
gzip: httpd-2.0.49.tar.gz: not in gzip format
root@home:/home/user/Desktop#
I don't understand this problem. I need a different command or flags?

I did ./configure, make, and, make install. I don't understand what PREFIX is in the Apache manual.

Somewhat realted question here...

I'm a newbie at linux and Just installed Mandrake 10.0 Official on:
P2-300 Mhz, 512Mb Ram, 7Gb on 2 drives.

anyway, I didn't install any GUI, and I've managed to learn some this weekend. I installed Apache/PHP/msyql at the time of the install, but for some reason mysql isn't set up as a module on apache.

I can't find the configure file on my computer, I guess it didn't get put on there with the install...so what do I do now?

I did # find / -name 'configure'
and it finds nothing at all (before I got a new copy of apache)... I did download a new copy of Apache 2.0.49 and untar'ed it (but not installed), can I copy the configure file to my other apache directory and use it there?

how do I go about adding the mysql module?
