Site Temporarily Unavailable
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.
error id: “bad_httpd_conf”

Anyone have an idea of why I get this? I sure haven’t messed around in any Apache configuration files, that’s for sure! :slight_smile:

The domain name, FYI, is


Click the edit button under manage domains and then just click ‘save the fully hosted settings now’ without changing anything and see if that does it.

You act on my advice at your own risk!

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. I still get the same error.

Should I contact Dreamhost support perhaps?

Yep! It the trick Norm suggested didn’t fix it, you will need to let support know there is a problem so they can address it.

good luck!
