    It happens from time to time (it actually just happened again - a server is down right now) that apache fails with this error message:

    httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    What is the possible fix for this? What should I look for, which file to edit etc. Hope that someone will share. :)

    Thanks
    John

    Run this command in 'root'

    /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -t

    Hopefully it will give an idea as to the problem.
