I type service httpd configtest on a fc16 box, and it works:

[root@*****]# service httpd configtest
Syntax OK

On a fc17 box, though, I get this:

[root@*****]# service httpd configtest
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl configtest  httpd.service
Unknown operation 'configtest'.

Both boxes have Apache 2.2.22 installed. Why am I getting a discrepancy?

This is probably because of the move over from sysv to systemd.

There's lots of documentation about the move on Fedora's web site.

you can run

apachectl configtest

for an Apache config test.
