Ok status update....

I have changed the SeverRoot to reflect the change as mentioned below but I
now get the following error :-


Httpd.exe : could not reliably determine the servers fully qualified domain
name, using {IP ADDRESS REMOVED FOR SECURITY} for server name

<OS 10048>only one usage of each socket address <protocol/network
address/port> is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not

Bind to address no listening sockets available, shutting down

Unable to open logs


What am I doing wrong??

Again many thanks in advance

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.

Hello again, it’s me. (oh boy i hear you groan, lol)


I have setup apache to use my pc as a local server by typing localhost in
the sever and domain sections during setup.  Now when I run apache i get the
following error :-


Httpd.exe  : syntax error on line 60 of c:/program files/Apahe software
foundation/apache 2.2/con/httpd.conf:

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


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

Many thanks in advance.


Thanks (so far to)

Morgan Gangwere  and
