I'm trying to start apache2 server but it complains at phpmyadmin.conf

enter image description here

File phpmyadmin.conf looks so:

enter image description here

It looks ok for me, but perhaps I miss something.

This error appeared after I tried to change default location of website doing commands as a2dissite,a2ensite. My apache.conf file looks so http://paste.org.ru/?ingbp6

Help! Thanks.

Does PHP work elsewhere? Can you get a phpinfo() printed out from any page? –  Nathan C May 23 '14 at 17:17
yes, fortunately or unfortunately it works - paste.org.ru/?ec2097 –  Alex Shulzhenko May 23 '14 at 17:26

This is due to apache-php module missing or being turned off. Try this:

aptitude install libapache2-mod-php5
cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/
ln -s ../mods-available/php5.conf ./php5.conf
ln -s ../mods-available/php5.load ./php5.load
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

thanks for advice! I did it paste.org.ru/?6u5dcx and got a new error... secure.conf file looks so paste.org.ru/?7xzjwh –  Alex Shulzhenko May 23 '14 at 17:44
Comment the line out like this: #Action php-cgi /php-bin/php –  edvinas.me May 23 '14 at 17:51
helped! it works! thanks. Is it not bad just to comment this line? –  Alex Shulzhenko May 23 '14 at 17:52
The line does not work due to another mod_action plugin being disabled. You can enable the line once you have mod_action enabled. –  edvinas.me May 23 '14 at 17:54
