Basically, i have a Debian Testing/Unstable which refuses to start apchae if imap is enabled in php, and i need IMAP. Enclosed is a list of my packages. I've tried all the "simple" solutions, and i can't get it to work. This is a problem which has come and gone with various updates of the apache/php packages in the distribution. There is no clue in the logs or straces, it just seem to die quietly.

So, some help would be apreciated. Im posting this with a heap of points, cause i am so stumped here....

I have the exact combination and it works perfectly ....
do you have any logs indicating the problem ? (eg htttp.log or daemon.log )

also look at this
>>scooter:~/Download/LAMP/apache_1.3.29# dpkg -l | grep php  
>>rc  php3           3.0.18-23.2    A server-side, HTML-embedded scripting langu
this indicates that you still  have configuration files from php3 maybe
a conflict  between packages?  I would recomend to to do an
apt-get --purge remove php3  
in order to clean your system from php3 files

Wierd. I deleted this question? Anyhow, the problem is "Debian bug 205553" so it is a known problem, and the workaround is described within. Further comments will not be considered for grading.
