With fresh installs, plus their own updates, on both FC5 and FC6, Apache
works for me.  But I don't use the GUI tool for configuring Apache, I've
never thought much of it, and I seem to recall someone mentioning it as
the culprit for some of the recent "Apache won't start" problems.  

Others have had problems when they've updated between Fedora releases,
or have copied their Apache configuration files across, a few things
changed in Apache between releases.

Though, any custom configuration files would probably have been left on
your system, and re-used with subsequent installations.  Did you check
for that?

You could move the current configuration files out of the way, and
extract pristine ones from the RPM.

My original httpd.conf file has just the following in the "Listen"
section.  It worked out of the box.

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, in addition to the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (

It's not something that I have installed.  You could try yum removing
it, and seeing what else tags along for the ride.

(This box runs FC6, my others run FC4 & FC5, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
