Upgrading Appache


I recently installed RH9 with has apache/httpd 2.0.40. verified by httpd -v.
my desire is to upgrade to apache 2.0.44.

I used a tar.gz instead of an rpm.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2
make install

after completion when I go to /usr/local/apache2/bin/ and apply apachectl start
the box returns an error: (98) Address already in use: make_sock:.....

After some research i foound I needed to stop the first instance of httpd. I did that by:

Going to /usr/local/apache/bin/ and apply apachectl stop

then go to /usr/local/apache2/bin/ and apply apachectl start

httpd -v shows httpd 2.0.40

However, after i rebbot or restart server

httpd -v returns httpd 2.0.40!

can someone advise how i can:

Remove the redhad rpm forever
and get the server to boot with 2.0.44!

To remove the Red Hat RPM, do "rpm -e httpd" -- you'll need to uninstall all of the dependencies. Also, if you want to compile Apache from source, you really should go with 2.0.53, which is the latest version.

BTW, the reason 2.0.40 came up after your reboot is that the Red Hat initialization script in /etc/rc.d/init.d still points at your old installation. It will be removed with the rpm -e and you'll need to redo the initialization (probably the easiest way for a newbie is just to add /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start to /etc/rc.local).
