Well, apparently its having the same exact problem each time.

[Thu Jun 19 06:54:57 2003] [alert] mod_unique_id: unable to gethostbyname("arcadia")

arcadia is the name i gave my system on installation when it was on the screen concerning DHCP. Since the computer is on a LAN, i don't exactly have a fully qualified domain name that I'm aware of.... would 192.168.blah.blah work to fill this field? On previous linux systems i've set the name to be poo.poo or something to that effect with no problem.

Thanks for all the assistance so far. I have quite a few things I plan on doing, and they all hinge on getting Apache working.

I had checked that out earlier. That's the reason I was so confused. I
really have no idea what's going on and i haven't found anything in the
errata/etc that says anything about Apache issues. I also tried using
normal apache 1.3, as well as apachessl. both do the same thing. They
configure fine but refuse to launch.

arcadia# apachectl configtest
Syntax OK

I have installed the base distribution

mod_ssl working. This has usually been a trivial task, but I've been
unable to make any progress, despite the so far wonderful
documentation. Any assistance that could be provided would be
wonderful. Below is my error message and uname -a output.


arcadia# apachectl start
/usr/local/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Try 'apachectl configtest' to ensure your httpd.conf is correct.

you may want to check if there are any abnormal messages in the log
files of apache (/var/log/httpd-error.log).
