Apache Error


Hi I am trying to start Apache and get the following error.

Quote:
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
[FAILED]

Any Ideas. I can't find and processes running that are listening to port 80.

I have been out of this for a while. Just trying to sertup Apache after a long time. As I remeber this from before I used to delete a file and the problem used to correct itself.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
nrmx

check the output of -->#netstat -a

#ps -aux [to make sure httpd is not already running on ur comp when ur trying to start in from the command line....]

also check ur httpd.conf to see what ip-add it is actually trying to bind to...

After netstat show that there something listening as mentioned above

In case you have lsof installed use 'lsof -i4' to see what the proces is that listens
on that port. (LiSt Open Files) You can find it for instance on freshmeat.net.

You need to be root to run this, since you are installing apache I don't expect
that this is a problem

lsof -i6

or lsof | less if you like to know who is using which file (in the unix meaning of the word)

Nothing shows anything listening to port 80. Using ps -aux dosn't show httpd running.

I got it. For some reason I put
Code:
Listen 80
and that caused the problem. Does anyone know why?

Also can someone help me out with CGI. How do I get a virtual host to execute a CGI sprit by default. For ex. what derective would let webmail.XXXXXXXX.com point directly to the CGI script for webmail?


Regards

there's a bit in httpd.conf that lets the server know what filenames are index files; i.e. index.htm, index.html, default.php, etc. I assume that as long as your cgi symlink is pointed properly, and the virtualhost container is pointing to the right place, as long as you have index.cgi defined as one of your index files (and the script is actually called index.cgi) you shouldn't have any problems.
