now it seems intermitant that sometimes it starts and some times it won't, do these mean anything to you.
OK I posted yesterday about Apache not restarting, and i think i have found out why, I was trying to edit the http.conf file to learn about mod_rewite, and it never restarted after i made the changes, so i undid the changes and now it works again, so how do i practise mod_rewrite?
Any thoughts would be appriciated as i need to practise it.
Thanks in advance, groove forum people.
