I have followed this tutorial on installing OpenLDAP, but now I want to remove it.

I'm not sure which command should I use for that. Can somebody point me in right direction?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If the makefile is correctly written, you should be able to cd back into the directory where you ran ./configure and make and this time run make uninstall

You should also look at installing checkinstall to use in these situations - it will allow you to build from source, but have the packages tracked by apt.

sudo apt-get install checkinstall and then man checkinstall
