Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache wont start
Date Sat, 25 Nov 2006 19:57:42 GMT
Start the Apache server as a console application with
  apache.exe -e debug 
  Check the System Event Log in Event Viewer.
  Event Viewer is accessed with Administrative Services>Event Viewer.
  Check the System Log and the Application Log. 
  Please let me know if you still get the error.

  Hello List

after having upgraded from Apache 2.2.2 to 2.2.3, I had some problems:
- When I tried to start the newly upgraded Apache, it wouldn't start 
because it said that the Apache 2.2 service was still running. 
Restarting the computer did the trick and it has worked ...
- ... till now: I did some changes to my .conf file, after which I tried 
to restart Apache... When I click 'start [the apache service]' it simply 
gives me a black screen and it dissapears... I think this is due to a 
problem in the .conf file, however instead of pointing to the error (so 
I could debug it) it does completely nothing... When I commented out 
everything that I modified after the upgrade, it still did the same, 
reinstalling also did not work...
Looking at the error.log file:

What the heck does that mean? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
