Start Apache - Error open failed

I have downloaded compiled pkg of  Apache version 1.3 from Sunfreeware site. Extract the apache package and also installed openssl and expat package as mentioned on sunfreeware site for Apache 1.3.27 version.

I did set up my PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH

When I try to start apache, I am getting an error as follow.

/apachectl start /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
./apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Please help !

Looks like it was compiled with diff locations than yours - find / -name ''  will tell you where the missing file is.  Chances are good it's not in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH yet.  Put the path to the missing file in and try again.
