    If you have a backup copy of your httpd.conf file, stick it right in and set the permissions.

    Ya, usaully one little error on the httod.conf file trashes the whole apache.

    Posting your httod.conf file might help.

    this is an user info from the httpd.conf file :

    <VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>
    ServerAlias www.site.com site.com
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    DocumentRoot /home/user/public_html
    BytesLog domlogs/site.com-bytes_log
    User sacnet
    Group sacnet
    ServerName www.site.com
    CustomLog domlogs/site.com combined
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/user/public_html/cgi-bin/
    </VirtualHost>

    don't you see that it is soooooooo normal !!!

    Warning: User directive in <VirtualHost> requires SUEXEC wrapper.
    Warning: Group directive in <VirtualHost> requires SUEXEC wrapper.
    Warning: User directive in <VirtualHost> requires SUEXEC wrapper.

    If you wont use SuExec delete
    User xxx
    Group xxx

    from your <virtualhost> entries to take a ride of that error message.
