    Apache does not start
    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.

    S.

    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.
