I’ve installed the LAMPStack 64 bit version on Amazon’s cloud server. When attempting to start apache ‘apache2/bin/httpd start’ I get the following error:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That file is a symlink in apache2/lib/ and points to so it looks like everything should work as expected. I assume it is some sort of permissions issue – but I’m guessing.

Any thoughts on how we can solve this issue?
