Do you have any include statements in your httpd.conf such as include conf/*.conf or vhosts.d/*.conf
?  If so, you’ll need to make sure there aren’t any syntax errors in those files as well.

Also, make sure that apache is using the same configuration file you are actually editing
by doing the following:

/usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd –t –d $(Path_to_httpd.conf)

Substitute $(Path_to_httpd.conf) with the full path and name of where your httpd.conf is located.
 For example:

If your httpd binary is located at /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd
And
Your httpd.conf is located at /usr/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
Then your statement would look like this

/usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd –t –d usr/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

 The –t switch does a syntax check on your file without actually starting apache.  When
you are ready to start it you can do so with the same command but just remove the –t switch.

Hi,
Thanks for replying

The first line of httpd.conf is
ServerRoot "/usr/apache2"
I dont see any error in this line

Thanks

Edit your httpd.conf – the first line has a syntax error that’s causing it to fail.  It
looks like you have a left parenthesis ( that doesn’t belong.

Cheers-
Sandy

Subject: [users@httpd] Unable to start HTTPD , apache web server

Hi,

I have downloaded & installed following apache binaries (x86/Solaris 9)  from http://www.sunfreeware.com/,
The Operating system is SunOS 5.9

 apache-2.2.15-sol9-x86-local.gz
 expat-2.0.1-sol9-x86-local.gz
 libgcc-3.4.6-sol9-x86-local.gz
 libiconv-1.13.1-sol9-x86-local.gz
 openldap-2.4.16-sol9-x86-local.gz
 openssl-1.0.0-sol9-x86-local.gz
 sasl-2.1.21-sol9-x86-local.gz
 zlib-1.2.4-sol9-x86-local.gz

all these were installed without any error,
and also configured httpd.conf, but when i start httpserver by issuing command
$ ./apachectl -k start . it gives me following error

/usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected

i have also tried directly executing ./httpd but it gives the same error.

Has anyone faced any such issue ?

Thanks.
