    Attempting to restart httpd
    Waiting for httpd to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

    httpd status

    root 5686 1.0 26.0 17544 16112 ? S 21:37 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr ./reshttpd


    httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    I have tryed to rebuild apache using SSH (PuTTY) and it failed after that. I rebooted twice in order to try and fix the problem, and it failed after the first boot and there was nothing i could do to put it right. I am not very good at servers, so i am sorry for asking for help for the second time in the last week. Not good at servers >.<

    My host is currently ignoring my e-mails because i am the co-admin of the server and not the rentee of the server.

    Can someone please help me on this issue?

    Try running /usr/sbin/httpd configtest.

    If find that 99.9% of problems that prevent Apache from restarting, for me, are due to the config.

    Okay another question...can you give us a snippit from your logfile? If it can't bind to the IP address you gave it, it'll die unless it has another address.
