Unhappy starting httpd

When i try to start web server in red hat 9.0 by the command

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start

i get the following error

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/auth_mysql.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/ into server: /usr/lib/ symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference

what does this mean and how do i resolve it ?

Well, just like the error states its trying to load the module: but it can't find it..

Edit your httpd.conf file accordingly and then try restarting, without that module, unless you need that module of course, then there's more trouble shooting you'll need to do and find out why its not loading it properly.

And Spaz17,

There isn't nothing starting from a command line over GUI that is causing this problem, it would most likely give the same error.

I'm going to bet that you have installed a game server on this machine. I had the same problem after installing a Half Life/Counter-Strike server on my machine, and I think I have a fix for you. The problem is caused by running ldconfig after installing admin-mod with mysql support. Its mysql Library is not compatable with apache (It wasn't written for apache)

at the command line delete the offending file by typing

rm /usr/lib/

and then press y to confirm.

then to update your dnyamic libraries, type

ldconfig [enter]

and wait for it to update.

last of all, type

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start

<or whatever your command to start apache is>

Gool luck with it
