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 seem to have the same problem on my iBook. I get
    [localhost:~] kgani% httpd -t
    dyld: httpd Undefined symbols:
    in the Terminal. Is this a common problem? My G3-desktop works flawlessly.

    Seems to be the same as the other guy.

      This is a common problem after updating to 10.1. There's a Apple Knowledge Base article that will explain how to fix it in depth:

      Unfortunately, you do need a username and a password to see this document. For a quicker explanation, check out this article:

      It's under the "Apache breaks upon update" heading. I have to admit that I haven't run into this error myself, but the answers I've seen are solid and make sense, so things should go smoothly for you.

        Thanks. I went to the stepwise site and did what they suggested:

        sudo perl -i.prefix -p -e 's/apple_hfs_module/hfs_apple_module/g' /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

        This seems to have done the trick.
