Hi,

I am using Mac OS X version 10.3.4.

I wanted to use apache with PHP enabled.
I read somewhere that PHP is not enabled
by default and that is should reinstall it,
and so i did:

wget http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/apache_1.3.19.tar.gz
gnutar xzf apache_1.3.31.tar.gz
cd apache_1.3.31
./configure --enable-module=most --enable-shared=max
make
sudo make install

Then i installed PHP:
wget ...
cd php-4.3.8
./configure --with-xml --with-apxs --disable-pear
make
sudo make install

Before that, that is when using the original apache with mac OS X
, eveything was fine. Now, i get the message:

>httpd could not be started

This error message is not very explicit...
Is there a way to start apache in more verbose way?


Then i installed another version of apache using a binary distribution,
and i installed it under /usr/local/apache (so it does not overlap
with the previous version).

It was working fine until i decide to install PHP, and then same
error message.

Am i missing something?

Thanks for any help.

Ugh.. yeah this is not good, I wish I could help a little more, but apache is fine, you just needed to install PHP, not them both I have installed PHP and MySQL many times on OS X servers and clients, but not apache itself. I have never needed to and I wish whoever told you about reinstalling PHP, would have told you just PHP and not Apache.

If you reinstall the OS that should do it for you.
