Yes, trying to restart Apache with an error in the config file will 
cause it to die.  I always run "apachectl configtest" before I restart it.

So, back to your commonhttpd.conf.  Again find the <Directory ...> 
statement for your DocumentRoot.  Within that directive look for an 
AllowOverride line.  Make that line say, "AllowOverride Options 
AuthConfig".  Restart and that should be it.
