Response to: Apache doesn't work

I'm having the same problem, also using a macbook and os 10.4.6. It occured after one of two things - probably the second...
1. I installe x-code. I don't think this is the problem, but I hadn't checked apache since I did this.

2. I tried to build php4.3 (i am new to working with unix in this way, and have never built/compiled - only used binaries.) It wasn't working out, so I tried to undo what I did by removing the files I had installed. This also involved installing and using fink, and installing some libraries, which I probably should have read more about before I did. I was trying to follow instructions, but I must have done something wrong.

I have already replaced the httpd.conf with the httpd.bak. This did not help.

The message I am getting in the console is:

Processing config directory: /private/etc/httpd/users/*.conf
Processing config file: /private/etc/httpd/users/+entropy-php.conf
fopen: No such file or directory
httpd: could not open

but that is not true because that path and those files do exist.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I started yesterday, installing php and mysql from a cd I got with a book. The php-installation did not succeed, I don't know why...
    Trying to start Apache, this message shows:

    Processing config directory: /private/etc/httpd/users/*.conf
    Processing config file: /private/etc/httpd/users/+entropy-php.conf
    Syntax error on line 8 of /private/etc/httpd/users/+entropy-php.conf:
    Cannot load /usr/local/php5/ into server: (reason unknown)
    /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started
    c-8fb5e055:~ alfasthlm$

    Does anyone understand what this means? And WHERE do I find these "lines" to edit them???

    Best, Al

      try removing the +entropy-php.conf file or make a backup
      something like

      sudo mv /private/etc/httpd/users/+entropy-php.conf /where/you/want/backup

      if you want to take a look at the +entropy-php.conf file
      just open terminal and type

      cd /private/etc/httpd/users

      open +entropy-php.conf
