OS X Lion Web Sharing won't start. I checked it with apachectl configtest and got this:

httpd: Syntax error on line 102 of /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf: LoadModule takes two arguments, a module name and the name of a shared object file to load it from

How can I proceed?

also, when I try and test the psp with <?php phpinfo(); ?> I get [ Error writing info.php: Permission denied – jwags Jul 31 '12 at 4:27

Please check line 102 of the file /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf, perhaps the format of the LoadModule statement is wrong.

The right format is:

LoadModule info_module libexec/apache2/

when I enter /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf I get an access denied statement – jwags Jul 31 '12 at 4:12
