Response to: Apache won't start

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:

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.
