    The apache on my server seems to have fialed and just will not restart at all. This as caused all my sites to be down and I dont know how I can fix it. When I log into the server it gives me this message.


    Unable to obtain apache version information. Your apache server at 65.75.163.160 may be down, or unreachable.

    I restared it manually to see if it helped but it didnt its still the exact same. Can anyone help me please, im clueless with this sort of stuff :(

    And I keep getting emails every few minutes saying; apache failed @ Sun Apr 10 17:29:16 2005. A restart was attempted automagicly.

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to login to the root shell using SSH and then type (on a Linux server):

    /etc/init.d/httpd start

    Watch out for errors. You should then tail the error log:

    tail -30 /etc/httpd/logs/error_log

    Either or both should give you an error message if apache fails to start.

    SSH to your server and look into Apache and other error log files:
    /usr/local/apache/logs/error.log
    /var/log/messages

    PM me if you need any help.
