Subject [users@httpd] apache2 config test failed
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2017 01:17:02 GMT
Hi,

Apache fails to start on a Ubuntu 16.04   Virtual Machine.

The error says  a syntax error however when I compare a working 
apache2.conf to a non working apache2.conf  version I can see that both 
configs are identical.


The error says a syntax error :

ERROR:

I tried replacing  the non working apache2 folder  with a working one 
but the error still persists.
Is the problem being caused somewhere else ?

How can I resolve this issue ?

Thanks,

Dan
