If it is new install you can run the install command with a --debug switch
to see what it would report. You can also take look at
/var/log/httpd/error_log and access_log on the server.
I had simillar issue but the server was an upgrade.
I found out though, that the error is very generic.
The fix in my case, was a re-install of some packages on the server.
