Try `telnet localhost 80` and then, if it accepts connections, type in "GET
/ HTTP/1.0" ctrl+m ctrl+j.  If you get a response, check out the Server:
line.  Should be something similar to:
Server: Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) PHP/4.2.3 mod_ssl/2.8.11 OpenSSL/0.9.6g

The server line will give you an idea of what is listening on port 80.

Subject: Re: [users@httpd] installation trouble

Ok, I reinstalled the tarball after I thought I unstalled the same version.
At best I thought I may just be copying over apache-2.0.40 with itself.
Everything went ok till i did

[root@mail root]# /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down

Now I understand this to mean that something is already allotted to port 80,
but when i do a % netstat -an | grep LISTEN , port 80 isn't shown like there
is anything bound to it.
I hope some of this makes sense to some of you, thanks,

      I'm running RH 7.2 on my server and was running 1.3.something. I then
tried to upgrade to 2.0.4 and in the completion of it have run into some
serious problems.

  -I installed httpd-2.0.40 from a tarball and I think I did it correctly
(tar xvf, make, make install, make clean, ./configure), but my box still
doesn't seem to be able to find it (service start httpd comes back with
httpd isn't installed
  -I have uninstalled 1.3.whatever successfully, but now my
/etc/init.d/httpd file isn't looking to my new version of httpd, not that my
box even recognizes the new httpd installed at all.
  -I am a bit frustrated, as this has been a problem i've had nagging me for
quite some time, if anyone could explain to me how to install httpd
correctly from a tarball, including how to make the box recognize and start
it, please let me know, thank you very much,
