We are trying to set up an Apache 2.x web server. We are running SUSE linux. We have done the following and our basic sites display the apache "This page is here because the site administrator has changed the configuration of this web server" page:

*set up the following directory structure -

/usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/
/usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/cgi-bin
/usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/images

/usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/
/usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/cgi-bin
/usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/images

*put basic index.html in the public html dirs.

*used the following httpd.conf in the apache2 directory:

NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.18
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.18>
ServerName local.smallshop.com
DocumentRoot /usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/
ErrorLog /usr/home/www_root/showsite/error_log
DirectoryIndex index.html
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/cgi-bin/
<Directory /usr/home/www_root/showsite/public_html/cgi-bin>
Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-scripts .cgi .pl
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>
NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.18
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.18>
ServerName local.bigcompany.com
DocumentRoot /usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/
ErrorLog /usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/error_log
DirectoryIndex index.html
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/cgi-bin/
<Directory /usr/home/www_root/bigcompany/public_html/cgi-bin>
Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-scripts .cgi .pl
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

make sure you don't already have apache running

type "ps -A" to see if your computer is already running "httpd"
   if it is, kill all of the "httpd" processes

is there other software already using port 80?
type "netstat -l" to see if your computer is already listening on port 80 (httpd)
  if it is, you'll need to find out what other software is using the port, and change the configuration of one of the programs


make sure apache is trying to start on port 80, httpd.conf should contain the following line:
     Listen 80
