Hi Guys,

My httpd server has stopped working on my FC4 machine. In the error log is
the following:

[Sun Aug 14 04:02:15 2005] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest
authentication ...
[Sun Aug 14 04:02:15 2005] [notice] Digest: done

[Sun Aug 14 13:05:40 2005] [notice] core dump file size limit raised to

[Sun Aug 14 13:05:41 2005] [notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper:
/usr/sbin/suexec)

The core dump and suEXEC lines are repeated many times.

I cannot start httpd, I cannot even remove it to reinstall. Checking "rpm -q
httpd" gives "httpd-2.0.53-3.2". If I "rpm -ev httpd-2.0.53-3.2" I get
"httpd-2.0.53-3.2 not installed." If I try "rpm -i
httpd-2.0.53-3.2.i386.rpm" I get "package httpd-2.0.53-3.2" is already
installed.

Any ideas on how to get http going again?

Cheers

Peter.
