Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 155322
httpd start [FAILED]
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to start httpd from system services panel, I get "Start service httpd [FAILED]" which doesn't
tell me very much at all. If, however, I restart, I get a very detailed message on services starting which
tells me why starting httpd is failing. I had to restart several times to get it, as the message flash past
FAST, but this is the jist of it:
Syntax error on line 6 of php.conf ... error while loading module /etc/httpd/modules/libphp5.so ...
Running "/etc/init.d/httpd start" from the command line returns only
libphp4.so exists, commenting out "LoadModule libphp5.so" on line 6 of php.conf doesn't do any good
because php won't load, which means Apache won't load. I suspect disabling php5 would allow Apache
to start, but my entire website revolves around php. Help?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Made no changes to system. This happens directly after install.
Steps to Reproduce:
Install fc4test2 with Apache, php, and mysql enabled
Apache won't start
Apache should start... I can't serve my website elsewise. I can do everything else from FTP to mail to
use WebMin, but I can't get Apache to start
Since I manage my site remotely, I don't have access to the paper that I wrote the exact error message
down on. That is all I can remember from memory. It is accurate, but there are parts left out. I will post
those parts tomorrow when I can call my family and get someone to read the error to me.
