Question Can's make httpd working - logs busy messages w/o any load applied


Hello,

I installed apache httpd on RHEL yesterday and still trying to make it working (can't even get a welcome page).
I've changed the log level to "debug" and keep getting the following message: server seems busy (see full text below). Needless to say, there, is no load applied to the server (HTTPD). Could you please share your thoughts. You can see all the relevant data below.

Thanks,
Leo

PS. I haven't changed anything in httpd.conf

Server version: Apache/2.2.15

6.4 (Santiago)

Linux r008k2n0c 2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Sep 14 05:32:37 EDT 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[Wed May 18 10:47:12 2016] [info] server seems busy, (you may need to increase StartServers, or Min/MaxSpareServers), spawning 8 children, there are 4 idle, and 4 total children

When you say you "installed" httpd did you do a yum install of the one RedHat supplies or are you saying you downloaded and installed it from somewhere else?

Did you start it after you installed it? (i.e. with the RedHat one did you run "service httpd start"?)

If you run "lsof -i :80" and "lsof -i :443" do they show any httpd process LISTENing on those ports?

Do they show as LISTENing on all interfaces *:<port> or just on localhost (127.0.0.1)?

Thank you for your reply!

I've installed httpd via yum (#yum install httpd)

It is running:

# service httpd status
httpd (pid 12900) is running..

# lsof -i :80
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
httpd 12900 root 4u IPv6 66651356 0t0 TCP *:http (LISTEN)

# lsof -i :443 (no output) [ installed w/o mod_ssl]

Actually telnet is able to connect (locally and from remote machines)

]# telnet r008k2n0c 80
Trying 10.78.218.104...
Connected to r008k2n0c.
Escape character is '^]'.

However, if I input GET, HEAD, etc. nothing is happening

Odd.

On a RHEL 6.7 here I just started httpd for the first time then opened port 80 in the firewall. After doing that I was able to access it via browser from my workstation successfully. It displayed the default "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Test Page".

You might want to run "ps -ef |grep httpd" to verify it spawned other non-root processes.

Do you have SELinux set to enforcing by any chance?

Also you might want to do a web search for your message:
"server seems busy, (you may need to increase StartServers, or Min/MaxSpareServers"

The "info" in that line suggests to me it isn't an error per se but there are a number of hits I've seen for that. Some of them suggest it might be related to the network load on your server. Presumably you don't have any web traffic coming here yet if you just turned it on (unless it is exposed to the internet and script kiddies have found it already).
