Syntax error in terminal. Help?

We’ve been trying to start Apache on our Ubuntu 12.10 X32 Server, but we keep running into an error.

I installed Apache and decided to restart the server. Once I restarted the server, Apache needed to be started again.

Every time I do the command “sudo service apache2 start” in the SSH terminal, we come up with an error.

This error is "Syntax error on line 11 of /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000default: Illegal override option Order Action ‘start’ failed. "

If you could help me figure this out, I would appreciate it.
