Exclamation Just Updated OpenSUSE, Apache2 is broken now!

Yesterday at work I installed SuSE Linux 10.0 (OpenSuSE) and the Apache2 server along with it.

Worked like a dream, and I was getting some good work done with PHP.

Then last night I got online and updated my computer while I slept.

Woke up today and Apache2 won't work anymore!

It's supposed to start at boot and it isn't. So I went into YaST to fix it and I still can't get it to boot!

Anyone have any idea why?

There's apparently some kind of problem with modules...

I tried starting it manually (su root, then /usr/sbin/apache2ctl start) and it listed off 12 lines of LoadModule: command not fount and then the final line consisting of about seven or eight rows of complete gibberish.

I believe what might have happened is that the system updated Apache2 while Apache2 was running, which might have messed things up. That, or the system updated a corrupted version.

In either case, what should I do?? My job relies on website design, and I'm stuck without Apache! (And I'd rather not install xampp on my windows box... prefer to stick to a REAL OS.)

Can anyone help me?

First of all use rcapache instead of running apache with the /etc...

Try rcapache configtest in root of course and check the feedback on errors.

Thanks for the tip.

I'll keep it in mind next time.

This time, I just did the quick-fix of reverting to the old version.

Works for me.
