I installed a Apache httpd-2.0.48 on my RH9 from source. Now I want to remove it and install Apache 1.3.x. Anybody know how to remove a compiled apache from LINUX?

with the source documentation there may be a make uninstall option

the line
rm -ri 'locate apache'
will (if you have slocate installed and updated database) find all files/folders with apache in the name and ask if you want to remove them.

there are other ways instead of locate, most do the same thing..
this is assuming that you did not use a package manager..
