    Ah. I'm going out on a limb here, but you should see that the httpd.conf.default file is much larger in size than your current httpd.conf. If this is the case, take a look around for some of the lines that I describe in my article.

    If you see then, then you may want to replace your current httpd.conf file with the default one. Only you can make that decision, of course.

    To do so, make a backup of your current httpd.conf file:

    cd /etc/httpd/
    cp httpd.conf httpd.2001-12-20

    And then replace it with the default:

    cp httpd.conf.default httpd.conf

    From there, try restarting the Apache webserver, and see what happens.

      Thanks for the suggestion... the file, sadly, is rather similar to the original config file. Here it is...

      #<VirtualHost *>
      # ServerAdmin
      # DocumentRoot /www/docs/
      # ServerName
      # ErrorLog logs/
      # CustomLog logs/ common

      Include /private/etc/httpd/users

      What do you think? I'm off to check a friends machine who is running OS X to see what the file should like like.

      Many thanks,
