    Apache syntax error Include conf.d/

    I am getting the error "apache2: Syntax error on line 516 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:" line 516 of apache2.conf is Include conf.d/.

    I am running ubuntu 12.04.3.

    Re: Apache syntax error Include conf.d/

    Could you post (copy/paste ) 3-4 lines above and including line 516? Sometimes the problem is a line or two up.
    (Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a huge .conf file...)

    Not sure which is the line number, but uncomment #Include conf.d/ . And restart the apache /etc/init.d/apache2 restart OR service apache2 restart

    To show the line number either use vi/vim editor or you can also use cat command.

    cat -n /path/of/file

    With vi/vim

    :set nu
