Hi Tony

I have made somme experiments which are a little confusing
but interesting

1 ) Check the symlink

/etc/rc2.d/S20httpd is really a symlink to ../init.d/httpd

../init.d/httpd ( /etc/init.d/httpd in real world ) exists and is not empty

Its contents seems normal !

Conclusion : I do not understand why dpkg is saying these strange error messages !

2 ) I try to launch httpd using /usr/bin/apachectl start

I was said that "httpd is already running"

Effectively if look at processes by "ps -edf" I see five httpd process running !

3 ) I open MicroB giving the URL : http://locahost

and I saw the message "It works" confirming the Web server is definitively working !

Grand conclusion : Despite the meassge in Application Manager, httpd seems to work !

It is impossible to uninstall it but maybe I have to stop the httpd processes before doing that !

In any case thanks for for your help Tony !
