Ok I think I figured out my problem but have no idea how to fix my problem

I deleted some files out of /etc/apache2/vhosts.d when I was cleaning out the new config files emerge was posting...

I tried re emerging the system but the configs I deleted did not come back

here is a listing of /etc/apache2/vhost.d

Code:

cowboy0629.ddns.net.conf  needfulthings.ddns.net.conf
default_vhost.include

If you restore those files from the most recent backup, does that resolve the original error?

I got it fixed thanks.. I can't find my USB with the Apache backup on it ... at least I think I backed up up ugh... but I did a list all and found that when I rebuilt it the portage put the 2 files in there as hidden cfg I renamed them and edited for my system and it started working again

Thank for the reply
