I am trying to install a new installation of Django using WebFaction's documentation. When I get to the step requiring you to restart Apache, I get the error "Apache is not running". If I run the start script, I get no response. If I run the stop script, I get "Apache is not running".

http://kylemorck.webfactional.com/ gets me a 502 Bad Gateway response.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

On our servers we track the connection buckets very carefully so that we don't run out of connections available to users. We also set a maximum number of processes run per account so that the same thing doesn't happen. In this case, we had a lower setting on the server than we normally do, I've set that to the correct amount and started your apache so it is running now.

Thanks klynton, everything is working now.

Or, here's another explanation for the same symptom: if you copy an httpd.conf file from elsewhere, make sure to change the port (to match the WebFaction control panel) and the paths (e.g. /django/ to /staging/ or whatever).

(Thanks to tech support for finding my mistake.)
