    [Resolved] Apache 2 problem

    Hi all,

    I come here because I've serious problem with my apache 2. When I want to start the service with /etc/init.d/apache2 start, I've this error :

    without other error message. When I make cat /var/log/apache2/error.log I don't have any error. When I look at /var/log/syslog, there are no errors.

    I don't know where my problem came.

    If you have an idea ?

    Thank you in advance for your help :)

    OS : Debian Lenny
    ISPConfig : 2.2.29

    Two options:
    1. Have you setup your SELinux correctly?
    2. If you compiled your own Apache from sources, you have to set user.

    Search for the variable ${APACHE_RUN_USER} in the file and replace it with the username of the apache user. the apache user is normally named apache, www-data or wwwrun depending on your linux distribution.

    Try this command:

    . /etc/apache2/envvars && httpd -t

    Is this the system apache or the ispconfig apache? If system, and you have a site in ispconfig, then don't forget that the error logs for the sites are in different locations. FWIW I just set up a Lenny install w/ same ispconfig, had no issues. Followed the perfect server set up, with a few minor changes

    When I comment this line on apache2.conf "Include /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf", apache start correctly. There is a way to verify the good structure of the file ?

    Where can I look to find the error about this file ? In "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/ispconfig.log" ?

    Thank you for your help :)

    Maybe the file is too long for Apache? What happens when you manually remove some vhosts (make a backup of the file before you do this)? Does Apache start then?

    It's not on my primary server, it's on my second server were there are 20 websites

    Take a look at the error logs for each hosted site, since it starts normally when you aren't hosting anyone (no vhosts file).

    tail /var/www/web*/log/error.log
