    hi,

    the apache is not functioning, when I try to restart httpd in ssh appears this message

    root@servidor1 [~]# service httpd restart
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart: httpd not running, trying to start
    eAccelerator requires Zend Engine API version 20021010.
    The Zend Engine API version 20050606 which is installed, is newer.
    Contact eAccelerator at http://eaccelerator.sourceforge.net for a later version of eAccelerator.

    httpd: bad group name portalnr
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart: httpd could not be started


    help me!

    Make sure that there is a group name: portalnr. If there is no group with that name, edit httpd.conf and remove that group name.

    You'll also need to update eAccelerator. Did you install a newer version of eAccelerator on an old version?

    Go on, have a guess
    Well, removing the group from httpd.conf is not a great idea. It's indicative of another problem where a group for a user account has been removed. If that account still exists then you should readd the group with the correct GID to /etc/group and /etc/gshadow (using groupadd is simplest). If that user account has indeed been deleted then you should remove the whole VirtualHost container from httpd.conf which contains the reference to that group in it.

    wildbrn,

    I've seen this problem quite a bit, actually. Open /etc/group in a text editor and search for pportalnr. Edit that so it reads portalnr instead. Save and exit, then restart httpd.
