Syntax error on line 47 of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'DAVLockDB', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Is mod_dav really being loaded?
I.e., did you do the AddModule/LoadModule stuff?

N.B. mod_dav is NOT part of the standard Apache 1.3.x distribution. Apple
distributes it, but if you build Apache yourself (eg, using Fink), then you
need to build/install mod_dav too.

With Apache 2.0.x, mod_dav is part of the standard distribution. If you build
it with the standard

./configure --enable-mods-shared=all

mod_dav will be built and installed along with everything else. The standard
httpd.conf file (with this option), IIRC, includes the necessary

LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so

line (Apache 2.0.x doesn't have a separate AddModule directive).
