Uninstalling Apache

Quick question: I installed Apache by compiling it from the source. If I want to uninstall it, can I simply remove /usr/local/apache2 and that's it? Or are there other files scattered around in other directories?

Hello Khang!
can I simply remove /usr/local/apache2 and that's it?
Yes, that will work

If you still have the directory where you used ./configure, make, make install, you can use "make uninstall".
But deleting /usr/local/apache2 is a much easier way.

Actually I already tried that, but it didn't work

Anyway I've deleted the directory.
