    apache errors and will not start up.

    Hello. I recently installed apache and was trying to configure ssl with it, which should have nothing to do with the problem but, anyways. I installed apache and shut it down just to test it and make sure everything was working. Well i went to start it back up and got this error.

    [sudo] password for allan:
    * Starting web server apache2 Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/www . salimane. com/] does not exist
    apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
    (9Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs

    any ideas. I looked around for a few days and found no solution.

    Any help is appreciated.

    What's up with the ""? Your document root should just be /var/www. Then you have index.html with the actual website in it. Determining the name of the server is up to registrars and DNS servers.

    Here is the whole setup i did.

    i installed apache and ssl.

    I followed this tutorial to install ssl.

    and in the tutorial it says salamine.

    That is of course wrong. My actual host is
    Its the hostname i setup through dyndns which is also setup on my computer.
    I have the ssl key (CA) key working i just want to get it to i guess work right.

    I followed the directions and before it just wouldnt load ssl right it would just give me certificate errors cause of it being self signed. Which i think you may have to pay for a real one. But anyways i was trying to figure out why it wasnt working and i followed the tutorial and edited the configuration files and even included my hostname in there. And now apache wont even start. So im not sure if i did something wrong or if there is a way to get rid of the salamine site and get my ssl working with the site i have setup.

    Hope this doesnt confuse anyone.

    Need any more information let me know.
