I am getting this error message. I am running CentOS 5.2 with Apache 2. How would I re-create this file? Is there a command? The server was built from a VM image.

Starting httpd: fopen: No such file or directory httpd: could not open document config file /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started

if you 'cd' into those directories, are the files there? – Zypher Feb 25 '10 at 2:15

You could simply uninstall and reinstall apache (using yum)
