When I start MAMP Pro 2.0.3 on Mac OS X Lion I get the following error:

Apache wasn't able to start. Please check log for more information.

When I look at the Console it says:

kernel: nstat_lookup_entry failed: 2

Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

From what I find online, that kernel error is quite common. Disable mamp and restart and make sure the errors are actually related. – Daniel Beck Sep 22 '11 at 5:07
I called Apple phone support and this is apparently an issue with my installation of Lion Server. Thanks for your help, I am going to have to restore my computer to before installing server, as I did not configure it properly. – Dan Rosenthal Sep 22 '11 at 14:52
