problem while entering local host (on apache)


i've installed apache from source files. it has installed with no problems. i've started the service, but when i try to enter http://localhost , i'm prompted a message that the connection was refused. i've turned off the firewall, but i still get the same message. what should i do?!

Check that it is listening and that the firewall is disabled. Post the output of:
netstat -nlp
iptables -nL

and about iptables, i've disabled it, to check if it pervents me from entering my host.

The netstat output shows nothing about a service listening on port 80 (http). How did you start apache? With "apachectl start"? Did you get any errors when you started it?

Then you must have started it as a user. Only root can start services on ports below 1024. Therefore apache defautls to 8080 if you arn't root.

Just change the port to 80 in httpd.conf, restart apache and you should be fine.
