I am new at this Server stuff so bare with me. I installed apache2 from source, Server version 2.0.58, on my linux machine running openSuse 10.2. Installation without a hitch until I tried to test it. I opened my browser, Firefox, and typed http://localhost
, and got the error could not connect to local host. When I run the script to start, /usr/local/apache2/bin.apachectl start, I get nothing telling me that it is running, unless I run the command again.
I am in root so everything should be fine.
In the httpd.conf file I set the following as per the instructions:
, I also tried ServerName 127.0.0.1:80
So, far I have been unable to get the server to work with just this one machine.
Please feel free to ask.
I have checked other threads but no one seems to have the same problem
