Question Starting httpd: execvp: No such file or directory

I removed Apache 1.3 to install 2.0 as I had issues migrating from one to the other. I have install 2.0 and also PHP 4.3.4. Both of these have compiled and installed no problem. But when I try and start up 'apachectl' I get the above error: 'Starting httpd: execvp: No such file or directory.' Can anybody help me with this as I have googled this thing to death but cannot find a satisfactory answer. thx. J
