Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache/Sendmail/Mailman Conflict?

Anything in the error_log?  Often apache will report that it has started OK,
but fails due to some minor error message.  ps -ef | grep httpd; does it
show the server running?  It could be something as simple as webmin looking
for httpd.pid in the wrong location.

BTW, one of the nice things about *ix systems is that you only have to
reboot the server when you either 1) install new hardware or 2) install a
new kernel.  95% of everything else won't care if you reboot.  Including
Apache.  :-)
