Apache wont start. Never seen this error before

Here is the message that I get when I try to run Apache 2 on my Gentoo linux system:

/usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -d /usr/local/apache2 -f /etc/apache2/conf/apache2.conf :
Syntax error on line 22 of /etc/apache2/conf/apache2.conf:
module access_module is built-in and can't be loaded

Please help. I checked the httpd.conf file and I dont see anything that might be causing this. Thanks.

Sounds like the module is statically complied into the httpd binary and your config file is trying to load the module when apache starts. Just comment out the line and rock on!

If you want to make sure what modules are already built into your binary, just run apachectl -l (that's a lowercase L) and it should show all the modules that are part of the binary. These are ones you can't load as modules in the config file.
