Okey, so first my problem was:

* Caching service dependencies ... [ ok ]
* Starting apache2 ...
apache2: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for CCL
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
* start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/apache2' [ !! ]
* ERROR: apache2 failed to start

I found thread talking about it:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-948826-start-0.html

and followed instruction, added ServerName localhost to httpd.conf and after that error looked like:

* Caching service dependencies ... [ ok ]
* Starting apache2 ...
* start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/apache2' [ !! ]
* ERROR: apache2 failed to start


All other configs are still purely basic, havent touch any of them. Just trying to get this work. (first problem was with eth0 not existing but gladly found: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-957342-start-0.html which helped with this problem.

Im not totally new to gentoo, but have worked with it in years 2004-2006 so actually i feel like Í have no idea what im doing

Doper,

Welcome back. We knew you wolud cone back sometime :)

You should have some log files in /var/log/apache2/ that will provide more detail.
In particular, error_log and ssl_error_log.

In /etc/conf.d/apache2 you will have
Code:
APACHE2_OPTS="-D DEFAULT_VHOST -D INFO -D SSL -D SSL_DEFAULT_VHOST -D LANGUAGE"
as the only active line.
Try removing -D SSL -D SSL_DEFAULT_VHOST, so that apache starts without SSL. This is not intended to be a fix, only a diagnostic aid.
