Problems changing Apache 2.2 ports in Fedora 8
Hello, I'm having a strange problem that I'm totally stuck on. What I am trying to do is open my test website to the world, I've opened up my ports on my router and thats been tested externally. Now I need to change the port that my website is accessible to. I want to use a non-standard port of 4040.
so as 'Root' I've gone into /etc/httpd/conf
Then 'Nano httpd.cnf'
Searched down the file and found 'Listen 80'
I changed it to 'Listen 127.0.0.1:4040' for testing.
saved and then typed '/usr/sbin/apachectl -k graceful' to restart the service. Here is where I get my problem. I get the following error message.
httpd not running, trying to start
(13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 127.0.0.1:4040
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
I'm not totally stuck, I've been searching the internet for 2 days now for something to work, but nothing has, everything is for other versions of Apache it seems.
Thanks for your help,
