when i click the start web sharing button in the sharing system prefs the button goes grey and it says starting up forever. if i quit system prefs it goes back to being off, but i still cant start it. anyone?
I just had this problem, too. Seemed to be out of the blue as I didn't thing I had changed anything. But I had been "looking" through the httpd.conf file. I guess I must have accidently hit a key or something cuz when I did the restart command I had a tiny little syntax error -- just a stray letter in a weird place. I deleted it and it's all fine now. Too simple, for once!
ok heres the message i got after apachectl restart
[localhost:/Users/zot] root# apachectl restart
/usr/sbin/apachectl restart: httpd not running, trying to start
dyld: /usr/sbin/httpd Undefined symbols:
/usr/sbin/apachectl restart: httpd could not be started
