Wink Apache listening on port.. well it isn't


Apache...

I have opened port 80 in shorewall.

I did a port scan on www.pcflank.com

It says it is closed (normally stealthed) on port 80.

The httpd service is running. But isn't listening. (I checked under netstat)

It is not the ISP. I have changed the port number and restarted the service to check it it blocks 80)

How will I get apache to listen?

I thought when httpd was running it enabled listening on 80?

Help would be great.

Neil

Running mandrake 9.1/shorewall/iptables

You sound like you know what you're doing so this is probably something you have tried already -

Should be two lines in your httpd.conf that go something like this:

Listen *:80
Port 80

By placing a star in the Listen directive I found that httpd glooms all bound IPADDR's - I presume you've done this but it's all I can think of that might help - good luck.

Port 80 was specified for listening.

I added *:

Unfortunately it still does not listen.

Thanks for trying

Well apache isn't listening on port 80. Try restarting it.

When I start httpd. Is says [ok]

But when I run the "entended status" command..
have a read below:

What could it be?

[root@localhost admin]# /etc/init.d/httpd version
Usage: /etc/init.d/httpd {start|stop|restart|reload/graceful|closelogs|update|status|configtest}
[root@localhost admin]# /etc/init.d/httpd status

Apache is *not* running.

Use /etc/init.d/httpd extendedstatus for more information.

[root@localhost admin]# /etc/init.d/httpd extendedstatus

Looking up localhost
Making HTTP connection to localhost
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile http://localhost/server-status

hmmm...if you run:

apachectl -t

does it say the Syntax is OK? You may have a minor syntax error in httpd.conf that is screwing things up.

Thanks for a quick response. -t will be the same as configtest.
There is no -t featured in the commands list to do with apachectl.

[root@localhost conf]# apachectl configtest
Checking configuration sanity for Apache 2.0: [ OK ]
[root@localhost conf]#


The config file is pretty much standard as it came.
Only tried different port numbers now and again.

Thanks for trying to help.

Try running it in interactive mode. Use the "-X" switch when running the httpd binary.
