Hello Rex, you don't happen to be a professor at Algonquin are you?

Thanks for the reply, but the issue was Apache not starting, then Samba not starting. Why? HOSTS FILE. Apache wasn't starting because it couldn't resolve my host's IPv4 address with the current hosts file configuration.

Anyhow, fixing up my hostname configuration in /etc/rc.conf and interestingly enough SAMBA started! I shall slap my wrists and expect some wrist slapping this week possibly from the man himself (Dan).

Phew, don't you just love fixing your own issues ?
