It is Apache version 1.3.31, it came with Mandrake Linux 10.1. I'm a Linux noob, so I dont know how to install a source copy, i only know how to install RPM packages. It seemed to be working until I changed a setting incorrectly. What I think that setting was Networking and Addresses. The Apache server was up, and I clicked the wrong option (of the three options None, All, [blank text box]) in the Address/Port Table. I think I clicked the blank text box option, and for port it was already set for port 80. I saved. Then I clicked "apply changes" thats when i got an error message that basically said "you jackass, you didnt type anything in the text box." I selected the "All" option still using port 80, then saved. When it went back to apache's page, I noticed that it said "start Apache" instead of "Apply Changes" So I clicked Start Apache and It's given me this error message since.
I've tried shutting down httpd and reloading it, shutting it down and then trying apache, restarting the computer, reinstalling apache, and I've found that nothing seems to work. My next course of action will have to be uninstalling apache completely and reinstalling it, instead of installing a copy over the existing one.
