    Is your key. Take a look at that file, or post it here. It should give a much better idea of the underlying problem.

    That file is your problem you can turn that mod off by editing your httpd.conf file to look like this
    find the line LoadModule log_forensic_module libexec/httpd/mod_log_forensic.so and add a # in front of it

    that should solve you problem, but also turn off forensic logging of client requests on your server, if you need that you may have to reinstall apache.

    Have you tried commenting out the need for it, as suggested by macmanmatty? Then httpd wont look for it anymore.

    what version of mac os are you using.* that can make a difference in the web server setup.* I'm wondering if its old because your UI looks a little different.* (or is it just a theme?)

    Are you logged in as admin or root? are the permissions of the file set to read&write for at least the system? If not then you won't be able to save the file.

    1) Open up Terminal
    2) sudo pico /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
    3) ctrl+w
    4) type "forensic" to search
    5) Put a # in front of the line: "LoadModule log_forensic_module modules/mod_log_forensic.so"
    6) ctrl+o, enter

    i changed the httpd.conf file and the mod_log_forensic.so is now commented out.
    The crash report now says however both of these files i can find both of these in the places they should be.


    fopen: No such file or directory
    httpd: could not open document config file /private/etc/httpd/users/*.conf
    /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started
