Apache upgrade on Mandrake 10.0 questions

Hey guys.

I wanted to play around with the box a little tonight so I decided to downloaded the latest version of Apache (2.0.51) and install it. Now Mandrake 10.0 already comes with version 2.0.48 so I wanted to install over the top of it. The problem is, is that I don't think I did.

I followed the instructions to installing .51 to the letter:

Extract $ gzip -d httpd-2_0_NN.tar.gz
$ tar xvf httpd-2_0_NN.tar
Configure $ ./configure --prefix=PREFIX
Compile $ make
Install $ make install
Customize $ vi PREFIX/conf/httpd.conf
Test $ PREFIX/bin/apachectl start

My question is, how do I know if installed over the top of the existing Apache installation?? Opening a webbrowser and pointing it to my machine still shows the sample .index page that came with the .48 installation. So I know that the server is running, I just don't know if it is the .48 server or the .50 server.

One more thing. If I do a "service httpd stop" in the shell, it says it shut down httpd "ok". But I can still access my sample web page from a remote browser!?! Does this mean I have another version of apache running?

Hi Biggen,

try httpd2 -v to see which version is your current apache2 . Try also httpd -v; probably apache 1.3x is running too.
