apache failing to start for strange reason


hi, i have just installed apache and it wont start for a reason that im not sure about.

when i run httpd -k start i get this error

Code:
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:81
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
does anyone know why it would have this error ?

thanks in advance

the socket is occupied by another process. there is another program listening on port 81.

netstat -an | grep :81
to see if it is used.

u will have to edit the httpd.conf file to bind to the ip-address of ur computer .. or u could make it bind to 127.0.0.1 [loopback address] for testing...

first do ps aux | grep httpd
if one is running kill it ("kill <process-id>" / see man kill)

try to connect to your pc with a browser. "http://your_ip_address:81".
if it fails and there really is no prog listening on port 81 there's something messed up. reboot your pc and try again. then try to start your httpd.
if this doesn't work (same error) use another port the way Usual mentioned.
port 81 usually isn't used by a program, but you may have configured something to use this port, so another process won't be able to use it too.

the only reason im using port 81 is so it is still accessable from outside my network because i have a server and amongst other things its running a webserver.

Code:
ben@myroom ben $ ps aux | grep httpd
ben      22832  0.0  0.0  1436  452 pts/2    S+   02:03   0:00 grep httpd
which is the process id ?

this is your grep call.

btw. havn't you something in /etc/init.d/.. or somewhere in /etc to start/stop/restart/reload services you're running in bsd? i think there should be.

ok the problems im having are on gentoo not Fbsd. my server runs fine, it has a web server running on port 80 and that is my main webserver. the problems are on gentoo which i have set apache to run on port 81 as port 80 is already forwarded to my server and i want a web-server on my box to have simple php-stats page etc.

root@myroom ben # ps aux | grep httpd
root     23259  0.0  0.0  1436  460 pts/2    S+   02:41   0:00 grep httpd
root@myroom ben # ps aux | grep httpd
root     23273  0.0  0.0  1436  460 pts/2    S+   02:41   0:00 grep httpd

have a closer look at the output. it's your own "grep httpd" call.

is the server on port 80 working?

try another port in your httpd.conf.php. start it to use the right config file.
