Exclamation Httpd does not create an instance [strange]

Hello to all,

I'm in serious need of assistance. To make a very long story short...I have totaled/destoryed/vaporied Apache.

The irony of it all is that everything started with me wanting to upgrade to GD 2.0

Anyways, here's the problem. I have seemingly successfully configured and installed and setup Apache 2.0 (httpd-2.0.47). Granted that I did alot of 'rpm -e' because the old versions of things were interfering with the new compilations from source.

How ever when i do:
# /usr/src/apache2/bin/apachectl start

things seem to go through. Yet nmap reveals no port 80 open. And when i do:

# /usr/src/apache2/bin/apachectl stop

I get 'httpd (no pid file) not running".

What could the problem possibly be?
This seems very strange to me.
Please advise
Thank you.

well did you tried
service httpd status
(for standard installation)
/usr/src/apache2/bin/apachectl status
(or is it httpd start)
(for your non standard installation)
now do a
ps aux|grep apache
(or httpd)
you should come across something.
Another reason for your port 80 not responding may be that the network service has not been started.You need the lo (ie localhost ) interface to use apache.
So do
$ifup lo
(why are you using nmap though,you could try any browser
just type http://localhost/,provided that your apache is configured in port 80)
