Either of these command strings should suffice:

yum remove httpd
rpm -e httpd

Be aware that both of those command formulations implicitly remove any
page with a dependency on Apache httpd.  If you want to remove but
ignore dependencies when doing so, 'rpm' (but not, to my knowledge, yum)
has an option to do so:

rpm -e --nodeps httpd
