I am doing a new server installation on SuSE 9.1 using Apache2. When I try to
start Apache through the webmin module, I get this error:
"Failed to start apache :
Starting httpd2 (prefork) ..done"
But Apache is actually starting anyway. Why the error?
Here's the long story: Originally, I wanted to avoid apache2 for a bit longer,
sticking to v1.3x. I successfully installed apache 1.3.something. The webmin
installation was in the SuSE 9.1 base package, so it came pre-configured for
Apache 2. I successfully altered the settings to make it work with Apache
1.3.x. Subsequently I decided to go on to Apache2 anyway, successfully
installed it, and now am trying to get the Webmin module working again. At
this point, Stop Apache works, Restart Apache works, but Start Apache reports
the above error even though it actually does start. I have gone so far as the
uninstall the Apache Webmin module and reinstall it, hoping that it would set
correct defaults. Unfortunately not.
Any help would be appreciated.
