Sorry for the long post, please bear with me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Fedora Core 4 with SELinux enabled. Trying to setup a fedora distro with Apache and MySQL working. A clean install formated drives and everything.
Yesturday for some reason Apache was running, PHP working, and MySQL. I thought life was good, but today when I tried to set the MySQL root account to something else, with a password, it got screwed up somehow and I couldn't get back in. So I decided to reinstall MySQL because I didnt feel like going through the process of resetting root password via MySQL commands.
#yum remove mysql
#yum install mysql
It removed a bunch of crap and I reinstalled everything it removed. Now MySQL was good. I tried restart apache, nada..... Here is where begining of troubles started. So I tried reinstall apache.
#yum remove httpd
#yum install httpd
It actually removed/reinstalled like 16 different packages, but I am listing just httpd here for simplicity. I go back to HTTP Configuration GUI and edit the httpd.conf file, goto the Services GUI and try start httpd, NOTHING! arg.. Ok so then I went searching for apachectl.
As root in the /usr/sbin folder I type.
nothing ok it started right/? so I check processes.
#ps -A | grep httpd
Arg so it isn't running ... ok whatever =( stupid thing doesn't want to work. Ok so now I am getting frustrated, it was working dammit what happened. /sigh So I thought maybe it screwed something up when I was installing/reinstalling stuff with yum. So i decide to reinstall it from scratch again! So I wipe the drives and do a fresh install again, 30 min later...
goto HTTP configure window and setup the .conf file.
goto services window, mysqld starts, httpd STILL does NOT start =(
The error message, from the Services window, says somethign to the effect, "httpd Service did not start, reason :[FAILED]".
Anyone know what is going on? What can I try to get it working ... /wimper
