Apache2 Failing

I have just reinstalled SUSE Linux 9.1 on my computer and I am getting a failure when I try and start the Apache2 HTTP Server.

I put some "echo" statements in the "/etc/init.d/apache2" startup script.  When it trys to start the server it uses the command "/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf" and a value of "7" is returned.

How can I find out why the HTTP server will not start?

Please excuse that, as a first aid, I simply did
'google' for a solution to your problem : ))
So here is about the very similiar situation:

If it doesn't help, let me know.
(I also do have Apache2, but with Suse 10.0)

Thanks.  That led me to the solution.  The PHP4 module was causing the failure.  I copied the PHP4 files from a working system and Apache2 is starting now.
