I recently installed debian linux. I used apt-get to install apache server. I attempted to install PHP 5 but i was unsuccessful. Thebn i did something stupid. i installed XAMPP without uninstalling apache. I want to start over and remove the XAMMP installation. I tried using apt-get remove but i must have the details of which version incorrect. My questions are:

1) what is the simplest way to find which version of software I have installed ?
2) what is the easiest way to remove them?

apt-get remove is usually the easiest way.

apt-get remove apache xampp (or whatever)

Also, why did you have problems with php5? apt-cache seach apache | grep php should show you the php5 package you can install.

To find out the version of your software, you usually run the program with a '-v', '-V', or '--version' argument.
