When I try to start Apache, it says HTTPD isn't started and when I try to start that, I only see 'failed'! What can I do now?? In /var/log/httpd I can't find errors.

Look at the log description (log file). –  AVD Nov 23 '11 at 10:55
Which platform is this ? And what command are you feeding to start Apache ? –  meson10 Nov 23 '11 at 10:55
Which one? /var/log/httpd/error_log doesn't contain anything useful.. –  Kevin Nov 23 '11 at 10:56
@kevin: You have to be precise in your questions. What platform / build. Or what command was used. Will help you get better answers :-) –  meson10 Nov 23 '11 at 10:59
CentOS apachectl start, /etc/init.d/httpd start, it is really urgent! –  Kevin Nov 23 '11 at 10:59
