Apache Removal Suggestions


I just uninstalled Apache and all of the rpms that relied on Apache. What I'm wanting to do now is totally remove all of it's files/directories as well. Does anyone see why this would be a problem? I have done a locate on httpd and apache and there are many file/directories still on the system. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Jeremy

I don't see why it would be a problem, just do a rm -rf /apache/directory. If your paranoid you can post the files/directories so someone can tell you if it's an important system file you're about to delete.

I thought the rpms were supposed to uninstall that stuff for you?

Id be weary of removing any rc files. Make sure they only contain information on an httpd server and they aren't scripts to start other necessary processes. A long process, but I'd personally go about it like this:

find the files (as you have). Take 1 file at a time, and move it into /tmp/delete a directory you create in the /tmp directory to keep all files that will be deleted after this is all done. Try to do everything on your computer you wish to do. Surf, email whatever. Maybe even a reboot might be in order if it's an rc file. Then, if you have no problems move onto the next file. Eventually all your files will be in /tmp/delete then just remove the folder:
rm -r /tmp/delete

And the files will all be gone.

Or if you live dangerously, and want to just delete files now, you probably are going to be ok. Assuming you aren't deleting startup files, you can probably go ahead and delete em. Again though... Be careful, especially with any rc files (in /etc/rc.d or init.d)

Cool

Those are a few that I'd hesitate on removing.

Bulliver (or anyone reading this who knows):
Why is this still there? When the RPM's were removed, should that have not also been removed?

Looks alot better as most files/directories are documents. See anything bothersome in this list? If not, I'm deleting them and hoping for the best. Worst case scenario, I rebuild. Thanks, Jeremy

These are the files I'd keep:
Code:
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/function.apache-lookup-uri.html
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/function.apache-note.html
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/ref.apache.html
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/security.apache.html
/usr/share/vim/vim61/syntax/apachestyle.vim
/usr/share/vim/vim61/syntax/apache.vim
/usr/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/text-modes/apache-mode.elc
/usr/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/text-modes/apache-mode.el
Simply because they appear to be part of other apps, not installed from the apache install; and why break a program?

Otherwise, go for it

Cool

Say, how do I remove a directory and all of it's contents without having to say "y" to each file? Thanks, Jeremy

rm -rf

Be very very careful. That alone can ruin your system. The -r option removes directories, the -f says do it without prompting.

Make sure you don't have a space like so:
rm -rf / usr

This will delete / (ie everything on your system)

Cool

Say, could someone help me install it? I know it sounds dumb but I have unzipped and untarred.

Code:
/usr/local/share/programs/apache/httpd-2.0.44
This is where I've extracted the files. I'm trying to follow the directions online and since I'm still quite new to Linux, I'm getting stuck. Thanks, Jeremy

Bulliver (or anyone reading this who knows): Why is this still there? When the RPM's were removed, should that have not also been removed?
Yeah, that's what I thought!?!?

perhaps rpm -e was run incorrectly, or with the wrong permissions? who knows.

btw, I don't see a problem with deleting the '/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K15httpd' files. They are the scripts that shut down apache when changing runlevels or rebooting. If they are not removed you will get something like:
Code:
stopping httpd                                             [FAILED]
because httpd isn't running. An annoyance more than a problem but still....

I noticed a few of the files were kernel source, probably not a good idea to remove, and a few belonged to other programs, as Master C pointed out, again, not a good idea to remove.
