If you were to start again from scratch - I use the
information on this page regularly to install
apache+ssl+php, it has very detailed instructions for
both apache13 and apache2:

To try and clean up what is currently there - it
sounds like a dependency on Apache 13 has been
created, so you need to find out what is depending on
it now, the following commands should tell you:

First of all, you need to know the exact name/version
of apache that is currently installed, type the


Near the top you will see an item for "apache....."

Now type this - the "apache..." part should be exactly
the same as what you got from the previous command:

pkg_info -R "apache...."

Now you will see all the packages currently depending
on apache - you need to remove them first before you
can remove apache.

Or maybe just start again using the info in the first
link at the top.
