Permanently removing apache2


apache2 is a metapackage that just selects other packages. If you installed apache by installing that package, you just need to run this to clean up the automatically selected packages:

sudo apt-get autoremove

If that doesn't work, you might have installed one of the dependents manually. You can target all the apache2- packages from space and nuke the lot:

sudo apt-get remove apache2*

For future reference, to find out which package a binary is from, you can run this:

dpkg -S `which apache2`


I'd expect that to come back with apache2.2-bin
