I am using a file to insert a few lines in an httpd.conf file via sed after the Listen directive, and receiving the following error when doing so:

"/usr/bin/sed: file /tmp/test_sedscript line 3: unterminated address regex"

Here is the command I'm using:
/usr/bin/sed -f /tmp/test_sedscript /usr/HTTPServer700/conf/httpd.conf > /usr/HTTPServer700/conf/ ;

Here is my test_sedscirpt file contents:
AcceptMutex fcntl\
LockFile /usr/IHSLogs700/test/aaccept.lock

Thanks for the help with this!
