    I am completely lost. I can not get Apache to start. I have tried everything I can think of. This is the message I get. I would extremely appreciate any help.


    root@server [~]# service httpd start
    httpd: bad group name bdkclan
    /etc/init.d/httpd start: httpd could not be started

    Open up /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf and remove the entry for bdkclan, then restart Apache.

    I attemped to edit it, and now I get this when trying to start apache:

    Syntax error on line 50 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:Invalid command ',', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
    /etc/init.d/httpd start: httpd could not be started


    I really, really, would love any help. I would even be willing to give you something in return. I really need to get this working.
