Post apache2 won't start

I'm trying to start apache2. I have it installed along with modules for php4 and mysql. I've done this before so I don't know why it's not working now.

When I try and start apache2 I get a message about there not being an ssl.conf file. And it doesn't start.

My conf file is basically the default one. With the server root and document root set to /etc/apache2 and /var/www. It's how I did it before and it' not working now.

I tried commenting out the line in the conf file which refers to ssl.conf but then I get an error about mime.types not being present. Now if I comment that out too I don't get an error message. Apache2 seems to start but it really doesn't. And I can't connect to my server from anywhere.

If anyone has the slightest idea of what's going on I'd really appreciate some help. Any help. Since it's basically the default conf file I think I shouldn't post it here... it being 1000+ lines and all but just let me know if there's any info you need. I've been digging at this for two hours with out any success, so please.

I still have had NO progress whatsoever. I've read throught the whole configuration file and messed around with some configuration but it didn't make a difference.

Any ideas?
