httpd dead but subsys locked

I ran nessus against my webserver and found out it was 'vulnerable' because it had apache 2.0.50. So I got the fc1 rpm for 2.0.51, stopped httpd, and upgraded it via:

"rpm -Uv httpd-2.0.51-1.1.i386.rpm"

It appeared to update fine and a "rpm -qi" told me that indeed it was version 2.0.51.

I ran "./service httpd start" and I get:
"httpd dead but subsys locked"

So I rm -f /var/lock/subsys/httpd, restart, check /var/log/messages and it shows that httpd started. But I notice that none of the httpd services/daemons are there in ps... A ./service httpd status again shows:
"httpd dead but subsys locked"

If I rm that lock file and try to start httpd it says it starts but a status gives the same error and its not really running?

Ok, I goofed and didn't look far enough.
I found this:

I commented it out and now it works fine.

So whats the problem with:
#LoadModule unique_id_module modules/

Recently I have installed fedora11 and I am getting same error. but I did't find the module in httpd.conf, which you have said.
Will you please help me in this ?

Any chance you could update the URL? This forum is being referenced from another stackexchange article and the fix was said to have existed within this thread.
