Apache Trying to Install on NGINX Vitualmin server.

So, I set up a server about a month ago with NGINX but soon after I got notifications that i had updates. When I checked it was "httpd" and Httpd-tools" but I don't have Apache installed on this server and didn't not intend to install Apache on it.

Can someone tell me what's going on here?

Also, is there a way to disable the Apache packages from installing on this server?

Hmm, just to verify -- it sounds like you're using CentOS there... if so, what is the output of this command:

rpm -qa | grep http

Still waiting for an answer! Anyone?

I unfortunately don't know why the Apache package is installed on there... I had asked Joe, but it doesn't sound like that's done automatically during a LEMP install. Virtualmin shouldn't be installing that on it's own for any reason either.

My best guess is that some other dependency somewhere is requiring it. You could always try removing the httpd and httpd-tools packages, ensure it's not prompting to remove anything important in the process -- and then keep an eye out for any attempt to install them during future updates?

That said, it shouldn't cause any trouble for them to be installed and not enabled.

Note that we try to monitor the Forums here, but we're not able to keep as close an eye on them as we do the support tracker. Since you have a Pro license, if you're not receiving responses here, you're certainly welcome to post your questions in the Support Tracker.

Actually Eric, Apache is not installed on the NGINX server. It is trying to install. I have it under "package updates available." Is there a way to remove it form my Software Package Updates so it doesn't get installed by accident next time I have other updates?

Edit: I just realized that the results of rpm -qa | grep http mean that Apache is indeed installed on my system already. I guess I will have to reinstall this server to be safe.

Hmm, I don't think there's any need to reinstall your full server there... I'd suggest just removing those two packages and working from there.

No harm should come to your server just by having those two packages installed.

As you can tell, I'm a noobie! I will definitely try removing Apache. I want to maintain a clean server without any extra stuff to cause any conflicts.

Thanks for you help!
