Hi John,

I have tried as suggested:

root@adanidas:/home/remmy# apachectl stop
/usr/sbin/apachectl stop: httpd stopped
root@adanidas:/home/remmy# apachectl start
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd started

But I keep getting the same error :( And yes, I have tried to reload
the page in Netscape as well :)

Thank you,
