Failed to start apache :

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 1027 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
ServerAlias only used in
[FAILED]

Somtimes I feel I,m on another planet..when I receive this form of error...a very basic problem no doubt..to me :<

I guessing that it relates to this area: can someone share some light

# Use name-based virtual hosting.

NameVirtualHost *:80

# NOTE: NameVirtualHost cannot be used without a port specifier
# (e.g. :80) if mod_ssl is being used, due to the nature of the
# SSL protocol.

# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.

Dumb question... why www.recruitmentnews.issoff.com? If it's a subdomain, it is suppose to be called subdomain.domain.ext

Another dumb question... do you have a recruitmentnews.issoff.com line added to your zone files? (in case you're using BIND)

I created the sub domain using cpanel on vps server,I assumed that everything was automated, when I received the login confirmation text file.

As the error states, ServerAlias needs to be in a VirtualHost stanza. Look at this line "ServerAlias www.issoff.com". The <VirtualHost> above it and the </VirtualHost> below it are both commented out.
