Where is httpd.conf??


Mandrake 9.1

Ok read this error..

Here is the error..

Quote:
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Where it says contact server administrator, root@localhost.. How do I change that?

I changed

etc/httpd/conf/common.httpd.conf

I search for httpd.cong from / and all it found was this

usr/share/ADVX/compat/httpd.conf

When I open that it doesn;'t have any reference to any email stuff and says don't edit it unless you are a guru.

I don't have a usr/share/apache directory either?

Help please? How do I change this stuff?

Cheers,

Luke

I do not use mandrake anymore, but I believe the actual httpd.conf file is in the usr/share/ADVX/compat/

The other one is just an example for you to go off of. I would make the modification in usr/share/ADVX/compat/httpd.conf and restart the apache server.

Yes that is the only one I can find but there is nothing to edit reguarding the server admin.

It says at the top do not edit unless you are a guru

Then their is just a bunch of stuff about modules.

Are you sure I have to edit that file?

Cheers,

Luke

I am pretty sure, because when I look at my config file I have the following:

# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents. e.g. admin@your-domain.com
#
ServerAdmin root@localhost

#
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.

See if you can locate that, if not I would backup the file and try adding ServerAdmin email@domain.com (your email address). If it does not work you can always revert to the backup file.

oh, one more thing, restart the apache server once you modify the file.

###
### Global Configuration
###
# We now support multiple apache configurations on the same server. In
# common.conf, we put all directives that are common to all implementations
# (httpd, httpd-perl, etc.)
Include conf/commonhttpd.conf


###
### IP Address/Port and Proxied configuration section
###
# The APACHEPROXIED setting can be set in /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd if you
# are using a proxy or accelerator, like the Apache-SGI or khttpd, so that
# the fast web server serves static content while Apache handles the
# cgi or php files

#BindAddress *
<IfDefine APACHEPROXIED>
Port 8080
Listen 8080
</IfDefine>
<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
Port 80
Listen 80
</IfDefine>

# Likewise, we can set apache as the server by default and send perl
# requests via ProxyPass to apache-mod_perl. It increases performance
# since the perl interpreter is only used for perl and the standard apache
# does all the html and image files, with a smaller footprint.
#
# If you install apache and apache-mod_perl, this is the default config.
# If you don't want two web servers to use perl, uninstall apache, and
# apache-mod_perl will not be proxied.

<IfDefine PERLPROXIED>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^proxy:.* - [F]
RewriteRule ^(.*\/perl\/.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}:8200$1 [P]
RewriteRule ^(.*\/cgi-perl\/.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}:8200$1 [P]
</IfDefine>

###
### Log configuration Section
###

#Single logfile with access, agent and referer information
#This is the default, if vlogs are not defined for the main server
CustomLog logs/access_log combined env=!VLOG
#If VLOG is defined in conf/vhosts/Vhost.conf, we use this entry
CustomLog "|/usr/sbin/advxsplitlogfile" vhost env=VLOG


###
### Virtual Hosts
###
# We include different templates for Virtual Hosting. Have a look in the
# vhosts directory and modify to suit your needs.
Include conf/vhosts/Vhosts.conf
#Include conf/vhosts/DynamicVhosts.conf
#Include conf/vhosts/VirtualHomePages.conf


###
### Performance settings Section
###
#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
Timeout 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive On

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 15

#
# Server-pool size regulation. Rather than making you guess how many
# server processes you need, Apache dynamically adapts to the load it
# sees --- that is, it tries to maintain enough server processes to
# handle the current load, plus a few spare servers to handle transient
# load spikes (e.g., multiple simultaneous requests from a single
# Netscape browser).
#
# It does this by periodically checking how many servers are waiting
# for a request. If there are fewer than MinSpareServers, it creates
# a new spare. If there are more than MaxSpareServers, some of the
# spares die off. The default values are probably OK for most sites.
#
MinSpareServers 4
MaxSpareServers 10

#
# Number of servers to start initially --- should be a reasonable ballpark
# figure.
#
StartServers 4

#
# Limit on total number of servers running, i.e., limit on the number
# of clients who can simultaneously connect --- if this limit is ever
# reached, clients will be LOCKED OUT, so it should NOT BE SET TOO LOW.
# It is intended mainly as a brake to keep a runaway server from taking
# the system with it as it spirals down...
#
MaxClients 150

#
# MaxRequestsPerChild: the number of requests each child process is
# allowed to process before the child dies. The child will exit so
# as to avoid problems after prolonged use when Apache (and maybe the
# libraries it uses) leak memory or other resources. On most systems, this
# isn't really needed, but a few (such as Solaris) do have notable leaks
# in the libraries. For these platforms, set to something like 10000
# or so; a setting of 0 means unlimited.
#
# NOTE: This value does not include keepalive requests after the initial
# request per connection. For example, if a child process handles
# an initial request and 10 subsequent "keptalive" requests, it
# would only count as 1 request towards this limit.
#
MaxRequestsPerChild 500

My guess is the setting your looking for is in that file.

BTW, since your ServerRoot is /etc/httpd, the file included above would be at /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf.

After looking at your httpd.conf it looks like it is pulling from commonhttpd.conf
Have you tried searching for commonhttpd.conf instead of common.httpd.conf?
Have you tried restarting the server?

Code:
# We now support multiple apache configurations on the same server. In
# common.conf, we put all directives that are common to all implementations
# (httpd, httpd-perl, etc.)
Include conf/commonhttpd.conf

Go to the apache bin directory and type:
Code:
./apachectl restart

or as root just type:

Code:
apachectl restart
You should not need to navigate to the apache directory.

In mandrake you can also go to the Mandrake Control Center > System > Services and locate httpd and click restart.
