button-print-blu20 SUSE Linux - WebMin not launching Apache

When using WebMin, sometimes the Apache2 panel will not launch correctly.

Step 1: Check that Apache is installed 

Launch YAST, then Software Management

Search for Apache2

Step 2: Run the MySQL config command, to set the default passwords and remove dummy databases

mysql_secure_installation

Step 3: WebMin can not find the Startup Scripts

If you navigate to WebMin, Servers, Apache

Then choose: Module Config

The path for the Root Directory was incorrectly identified:

Original Path: /usr/local/httpd
Correct Path: /srv/www

and the path for the http.conf was incorrectly identified:

Original Path: /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
Correct Path: /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

You may also want to change, srm.conf & access.conf to Automatic

mime.types is should also be changed to /etc/apache2/mine.types
