HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

HP-UX 11.11 comes with Apache 2.0.43. We don't use apache and are not planning to use them in the near future. What is the best way to uninstall/swremove the package/bundle? There are several filesets included with HPApache. Should I use swremove on each one?

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

swremove the bundle should remove all filesets, unless those filesets are being used by something else.

You can do swremove in interactive mode and select all of them individually if you want to be sure you get them all.

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

HPApace doesn't show in the swlist. I guess its not a bundle. If I do swlist -l fileset | grep -i apache, it gives me the list above. I'm looking for a clean way to uninstall all of them.

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

You can just disable it -

/sbin/init.d/apache stop

vi /etc/rc.config.d/apacheconf


Or to remove, I think you can:
swlist -l product |grep -i apache
ApacheStrong HP Apache-based Web Server with Strong (128bit) Encryption

Then swremove ApacheStrong?

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

Thanks Marvin. Tha works.
Just curious, since Apache is bundled with HPUXi-OE-Ent, is there any impact on the OS in any way,if this is removed completely?

None that I am aware of.

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

There is no impact on the OS by removing apache. HP did provide some documentation as part of that apache server.

If you don't care about the documentation, swremove the server.

If you plan on keeping apache, they are up to version 2.0.49. You can get 2.03 of HP's web suite free at

Re: HPApache on HP-UX 11.11

Thanks Steven. The reason we are removing Apache is because of constant exposure to vulnerabilities. Even though we are not using Apache, it is still installed and can still be exploited. No point of upgrading it. New vulnerabilities and threats will always be there.
Thanks for everyone.
