This howto assumes you have already installed a working Linux system. This howto is based on a Redhat 6.2 system. I would appreciate any feedback on setting this up on other distros.
The first thing you will have to do is uninstall the apache and mod_php rpms. Try the following:
# rpm -e apache # rpm -e httpd # rpm -e mod_php # rpm -e php
That should get rid of them. Just to be sure, run this:
# rpm -qa | less
and check that there is nothing to do with Apache or PHP left on you system.
