#4280 False alarm and display error in Apache Module


I am using Webmin 1.640 and the new Apache Module fix.
Installed Apache Version is 2.2.22

If i open the Apache Server Module in Webmin it says always Start Apache in the top right corner, but apache is running without any problems.

If i click it, i get the "empty" error message:
Starting web server: apache2.

    Specifically Webmin 1.640 and Apache2 2.2.22
    Failed to start apache :
    * Starting web server apache2

    FWIW, Apache does WORK, but that doesn't matter. What good is it if I can't modify it?

    Also, in Webmin systemlogs for Apache it no displays this:
    File /etc/apache2/${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log Yes Apache error log

    Ok, a fix for this is now available from http://www.webmin.com/updates.html . You should also get prompted to install this system on the System Information page that appears after logging into Webmin.

    FYI, Webmin 1.650 has just been released which also includes this fix.
