Subject [users@httpd] Apache not starting up, no errors?
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2007 19:10:19 GMT
Not sure what info would be good to give, or what output is needed, 
but I upgraded my OS/X box to 10.4 server from 10.4 
workstation.Upgrade is wrong - I had to do a fresh install. I opted 
not to install the server version of Apache, so I recompiled and 
reinstalled 2.2.3 from source ( I was on 2.2.3 before - if I can 
upgrade to 2.2.4 without major rewriting of my httpd.conf, sure, I'll upgrade).

So I kept my existing install parameters:--enable-mods-shared=most 
--prefix=/Library/Apache2 --enable-ssl

Install went fine. So I thought...

Now, running apachectl start, nothing happens. No command line 
output, nothing logged to /var/log/httpd/ anything. ps aux shows 
nothing apache running.

Is it possible the apache user wasn't created properly? I don't 
recall doing this before - does the apache install automatically do 
this, or is it something I need to do, and if so, what parameters 
(gid, home, shell, etc) do I need? or is there something else I'm missing?

Any help appreciated.. Sorry I don't know what other info to give. I 
have confirmed it's using the correct httpd.conf, if I add a X line, 
and run apachectl start, it gives an error about that line.
