Hi James,
It sounds like the ServerRoot directive has been amended to point to the location of the website
being hosted. It should point at the location where apache is installed.
For example, in a default install on windows, it looks like this:
ServerRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2"
This directive tells the server where to put the configuration, error and log files.

Cannot load c:/website/module/ into server: The specified module could not be


What if anything am I doing wrong, or am I just missing a simple step out somewhere.

Many thanks in advance.


Thanks (so far to)
