After installing php4-mhash, I cannot get apache to restart.
I cannot find anything in the logs, namely http-error.log probabl 
because apache needs to be started.  I am not finding anything in the 
/var/log/messages either.  When I start apache from the command line, it 
gives me the message the httpd has been started but there doesn't. 
What could be wrong?

btw, this is installing on apache ....WAIT a moment.  When I do a 
pkg_info, I get apache+mod_ssl-1.3.31+2.8.19.  Could that be my problem? 
  Does that mean that there are two versions of apache installed?  I do 
not remember doing a matter of fact I know I did not do this.
Can someone shed some light on this for me?
