Platform: OS/400 V6R1, IBM i

After upgrade to V6R1, one of our Apache instances will not start. It appears to die silently; DSPJOBLOG yields nothing, /www//logs/error* are all empty, and a WRKSBSJOB QHTTPSVR command shows no leftover jobs or spool files.

Any ideas on where else we can look for some insight into where the failure is occurring?

There was a spool file left over there, notified us of a syntax error in the .conf file.
