Hi Screenidhi,

The errors about all the missing apache2 mods looks odd to me, as does the error about a missing /etc/apache2/apache2.conf. Were you able to get back up and running after hitting this issue, or is the server still in fault? If you do have an apache2.conf file, can you attach it? If you don't have one, can you explain more about how you're using apache and php on your server?
