Problems after cleaning up /tmp

I recently lost a hard disk and had to re-install Red Hat Linux 9 and Oracle 9iR2. All went well until I ran a script to clean up /tmp. Now the Oracle Apache will not start, and I get a message about a file or directory that cannot be found. What can I do to repair this problem and get whatever was on /tmp onto a 'real' directory?
If the /tmp directory privileges are still correct (1777), then Apache is probably complaining about something else. The error_log should shed some light on what file is missing. I also try to simplify the httpd.conf configuration by commenting out the included files and some of the loaded modules and seeing when the HTTPD server will start again. Then slowly add things back in and see when it fails. There's also a LogLevel in the httpd.conf that can be set to "debug" to get tons more log information.
