Apache Webserver on Slackware - Failed to Start Apache - 'no listening sockets .."
Can I ask for documentation and help for resolving my problem to start Apache Webserver on Slackware 12;
The module has been installed successfully and one virtual host created / listed, but at the point of trying "Apache Start" the reply is referring to "no sockets available"..
If somewhere in the forum the same issue has been dealt with, I would appreciate directions to topics and tuitorials.
I have kept the default server as generated during the installation, and created 2 virtual hosts (one is per DNS name, the other is per IP address (matching the registered DNS name)).
Thank you in advance,
Do this. The PID for httpd is still running even though apache looks dead.
From the command line ~# killall -9 httpd
~# apachectl start
or ~# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Hope this helps.
Thank yo millergroup and unSpawn,
Noted. In meantime I have been reading related topics and changed the listening port to 8080 instead standard 80.
Now, by typing my IP address http://123.456.789.123 and http://123.456.789.123:8080 I can open up the test index file ("It Works") but the next task for me is to open the www.servername.com in the browser.
By doing that it gives me a search page.
Of course, I have not uploaded any content as yet, but I will make a test html page and upload it to the related content folder.
I hope to resolve this stage successfully, if any pointing to sequence of procedures and pointing to topics is given to me I would be grateful!
There is no need to change to 8080. As unSpawn indicated, the address is already in use. You can stop Apache in Slackware with /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd stop and start it with /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start; do this as root.
With regards to access via the domain name. You can add the domain to /etc/hosts
