    ahh, that may be the problem. did you configure ssl on the server or have you not done anything beyond installing? it sounds like apache is configured to server ssl with a certificate that requires a passphrase, so when you boot the computer up there is no place to prompt for a passphrase so it just rolls right over it and you get a defunct apache. a simple test would be to disable starting the 443 port in your conf file and removing any 443 virtual hosts and then try it again

    Yes, I did do some configuring of my ssl certificate after the install. As I understand this is to allow my displaying of a default webpage.
    So, I did as you suggested

    I looked at my conf file, (apache2.conf) there is no mention of SSL or port 443 there, so that went untouched.
    In my "sites-enabled" directory, I removed the symbolic link to the default-ssl that is in sites-available, then I commented out port 443 in /etc/apche2/ports.conf
    Rebooted, then did a netstat, this showed apache listening on port 80.
    The stopping and starting of apache now works fine without errors.
    I tried displaying the webpage using "http://localhost" and it works fine, how do I get to this page from another pc?

    Apache2 now starting and stopping normally.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    I'll persure the question "how does one get to load a page from another cpmputer"
    after I do research.
