Subject Problem Starting Apache 1.3.22
Date Wed, 09 Jan 2002 15:39:47 GMT
I am installing Apache 1.3.22 on an AIX 4.3.3 server. When I first start
Apache I get the following error message:
	# /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start
	Syntax error on line 296 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
	Expected </Directory> but saw </Directory>
	/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Instead of including the complete httpd.conf file, I have included the lines
around line 296 below:

	# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
	# permissions.
	<Directory />
	    Options FollowSymLinks
	    AllowOverride None

	# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
	# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working
	# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
	# below.

I do not see the problem, I have been fighting with this for a month. If
anyone has any ideas on the problem please let me know. The help would be
greatly appreciated.
