    run the command:

    cat /etc/passwd | more

    have a look, do you have the user "apache" and the user "nobody" on your system? if not, try adding them without setting a password.

    Failing that, I would suggest you consider upgrading to 1.3.27 or 2.x

    From what i understand, he has never got his apache server running? Therefore, i dont see that any settings would need to be transfered? I would remove all traces of the old apache install, including the httpd.conf and then put a new version on.

    Thanks, I think Apache common enough to add to the cmd line sticky. Any other Apache newbie cmd line stuff you think might be added?
