I had to reinstall Snow Leopard yesterday and since then I'm getting
very odd messages from Apache. Here's the first error:

Jul 10 00:48:39 Jim-Coyles-iMac org.apache.httpd[19086]: httpd: Syntax
error on line 55 of /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf: Cannot load /
private/libexec/apache2/mod_authn_dbm.so into server: dlopen(/private/
libexec/apache2/mod_authn_dbm.so, 10): image not found

I've tried commenting out line 55, but it seems to make no difference.

This next error seems even odder to me. Geek Took is trying to display
the access log, but gets this error:

Jul 10 00:48:40 Jim-Coyles-iMac GeekTool[279]: No such file or
directory : /var/log/httpd/access_log (Retrying)

It would seem that the entire access log file has been hosed, BUT, I
just did a fresh install of Snow Leopard. Not sure what gives here.
Any ideas?

The httpd.conf file was NOT lost and is, of course, configured just as
it was before. Was a fresh copy of Apache2 not reinstalled when I
reinstalled the System? Were things deleted, or is there something
very obvious here that I'm missing?

Thanks for any help.
