Very strange.  Apache httpd's startup should never, /ever/ hang.  The
standard initial script calls "apachectl start", which will either
start (and fork) or fail to start httpd, but should return control

Try (as root):

1. Running "apachectl start" by hand (from the appropriate <apache
   stuff>/bin directory).  If that hangs, that's where the problem is.

2. If that went fine (didn't hang), try running the init script
   (/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd ?) by hand (again, with an argument of
   start).  If that hangs where 1. didn't, you might wanna dig around
   in there abit.

Did you mention your distro?  (I forget).
