Hey Mark and Jonathan, thanks a lot for the replies.

I'm not a very experienced linux user. Can you guys suggest me the steps I
have to follow?

1) Do I have to uninstall Apache too? Not, right?
2) How about Perl?
3) Mark, how do I re-install all CPAN modules? I mean, I do know how to
install, using the 'perl -e --MCPAN shell' command. But how do I uninstall
them before? All of them, or just the Apache related ones?
4) And how to uninstall mod_perl?

Thanks a lot
