Question Apache web server install fails

I am running Mandrake 10.0.

When using the server install wizard through Control Center to install the Apache web server, the process fails. The resulting message is "Failed. Relaunch drakwizard and try to change some parameters."

Several different configurations have been attempted with the same result.

There is no indication of any problem that I can find, ie: the NIC and network properties all appear to be functioning okay.

The Apache package was removed and re-installed just in case.

With no indication of the cause, I have no direction to go in looking for a solution.

Anyone have any ideas?


BTW, It's Apache v.2

What happens if you do /etc/init.d/httpd start ?

You can run it from a command line to test the config files..
do httpd -t

or httpd -X to run it from the command line terminal. (ctrl-C to shut it down)
This will print the error messages on the screen rather than a logfile..

More details in man httpd & man apachectl
