Don’t despair, there’s help.

First of all, there’s a Ninja Technique, called Google-driven-System-Administration. The general prinicple is the following:
1. Make the Software to be more verbose. Put on all logs, —verbose flags, etc.
2. Start the Software.
3. Look at console output, Software logs (usually in /var/log directory), try out the command “dmesg” and search for clues of what the problem really is.
4. Feed Google with messages that you think are corresponding to your problem. It is very probable that anyone in the world has already posted about the problem in a web forum. Then try out the solutions. You may need to refine the error message to be not too specific on the one hand and not too general on the other hand.

This technique is generally applicable to many, many problems, not just “System Administration”.

As i don’t use Apache myself, i found this quick and easy solution which should help you out:
	apt-get purge apache2
	apt-get update
	apt-get install apache2

There seem to be old config files lying around. This re-installs the apt-get version which will surely work!
