Hi, I'm new to running a server, and I got an email from my server that said apache has failed, and it attempted to restart apache automagicly. It didn't work. None of the websites on my server are coming up, but the mail and FTP still work. I can get into WHM, but clicking the link to restart apache doesn't successfully restart it.

Can someone help me, please?

Mary

Try running '/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl configtest' from the shell and see what it says.

Thanks, Saeed, it's all fixed now. My friend Ronnie at AlwaysWebHosting rebooted the server for me. I need to learn some SSH so I can do these things myself! Got any recommendations on a tutorial or a good book?

If you hear of a good ssh manual I would like to know as well.

SSH stands for Secure SHell, if you want to Administer via SSH you have to learn Linux, there are so many books and How-tos that you can use. However experience is the second key.

If you can afford it, buy a really cheap computer (like a Pentium 200Mhz with 32-64mb ram) and install Linux on it and have it at home to try things on. As itf recommended, a book wouldn't hurt either to get you started.

(SH)Saeed is right but Redhat Linux supports multi boot system you can install it while you have Windows on your hard disk at the same time, choose GRUB as your boot loader and KDE as your GUI then I'm sure you can use your new Linux as your windows

What you need is just some space on your hard disk, also with Redhat Linux you can use windows partitions while you are in Redhat Linux OS too, just you have to mount them in /etc/fstab

at the boot time, GRUB will prompt you which OS you want to boot (however you can use LILO too )

enjoy it.

For your information more than 12 millions of computer home users use Linux on their PCs
