Linuxhelp _ General Discussion _ httpd could not be started - Virtual Hosts

Posted by: aztek May 26 2006, 08:16 PM

Hi Guys,

First of all im new to Linux(Debian) and im still threading the waters. I hope you could help me with this. Im using apache 1.3.36 and trying to install virtual host. Before i installed virtual host my apache was still working.
Here's the error when i boot-up:
Processing config file: /www/conf/vhosts/
/www/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started
What i did to creat virtual host:
1. created /www/conf/vhosts
2. modify httpd.conf to include at the end of the script: include conf/vhosts
3. edited NameVirtualHost *
4. Created a separate file: for my hosts.
5. I added with an ipadd to my hosts file at /etc/hosts
6. I created directories for VirtualHost:
7. I created users and asigned permissions:
chown -R someuser.somegroup /home/
8. added to /etc/init.d/rc: /www/bin/apachectl startssl

thanks in advance
