  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   Apache won't start

Hi, I am running OS X on an ibook, and when I try to start web sharing, the button grays and nothing happens (ie, the button doesn't become a stop button). When I check the active processes, no httpd. Any ideas?

    Do you know how to get into your Terminal? If so, run "httpd -t". What do you get for output? What version of the OS are you running?

    i had the same problem. see recent article in macfixit os x section. i

    looking at the console, i saw i was missing a file called:

    /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

    there was a file called:
    /etc/httpd/httpd.conf.bak

    i went to the /etc/httpd/ directory and duplicated the backup file as:

    %sudo cp httpd.conf.bak httpd.conf

    then it worked.

    who knew.
