When you say programs, you likely mean modules. You likely did not compile
in the modules you are attempting to use. Removing the installation is a
matter of just deleting the files. You do not need source to do that. If
you isolate apache to its own directory I.e. /usr/local/apache, then you
can just remove that dir. If not, cleanup is probably not ideal. Recompile
from the source with the modules you want or modules-all.

Subject: Re: [users@httpd] Problems on Linux

FWIW, I dnloaded same version and compiled it per the installation docs,
took the defaults, and installed under RH9 with all applicable patches.
Proxy works, don't know about SSL - havent tried it.
When you say 'programs' I am not sure what you mean...apache is stand
alone.  Calls to FTP for example are passed via the os and the
appropriate FTP daemon...Could you provide a copy of your compile string
and logs?  What version of Linux?  Sounds like you need to spend some
time reading and understand the docs...Have  you read the install,
config and run docs?
