Need Help upgrading LAMP server





ammonkc
I have a SUSE LAMP server that I need to upgrade. I need to upgrade php from 4.3.3 to 5.1.2. The problem that I'm having is that whoever originally built this server used rpms, probably yast or something like that, and I can't figure out how to uninstall the rpms. I want to remove the rpm apache and php and do a build from source so that I know exactly where everything is on the server. I don't even know where the current apache and php installation is, and I can't seem to remove it.

This is what I tried so far.
Code:

Finds installed packages:
> rpm -qa | grep -i apache
> rpm -qa | grep -i httpd
> rpm -qa | grep -i php

then I issued this command for all  packages found:
> rpm -e [package-name]

I thought that this would remove the apache and php binaries and allow me to do a fresh install from source. But the old apache and php server is still running. I'm not even sure how to stop the old apache server since I don't really know where apachectl is located.
How do I completely remove apache and php4.33 (but keeping my web app files) so that I can build from source a fresh copy?
