Subject [users@httpd] works on Apache 1.3.26, but not on 2.0.42 (server won't start)
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2002 14:49:17 GMT
We are currently running both MS IIS5 and Apache 1.3.26 on several Windows 
2000 Advanced Servers, each web server has its own dedicated IP 
address.  Now we are trying to upgrade to the new 2.x series of Apache and 
it is not working.   FYI: We always have to start IIS first, then the 
Apache service, but at least it works this way, but not at all with 2.x.

We have two IPs bound to the same NIC in the machines.   I have configured 
IIS to bind specifically to its own IP in both the FTP and IIS settings 
within the MS Console.
I am just testing Apache2 from command-line for the moment (starting via 
services yields the same failure)

C:\>D:\Apache2\bin\Apache.exe -w -n "Apache2" -k start
(730048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network 
address/port)  i
s normally permitted.  : make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

The only change I have made at this point to the stock httpd.conf is around 
line #124 regarding the LISTEN directive:


If I change the LISTEN directive to use a non-80 port, then it fires up 
just fine with IIS5 running.  Once again I repeat, IIS5 is on IP#1, Apache 
is on IP#2.
If I take a stock Apache 1.3.26 httpd.conf, then I apply the following to 
the LISTEN and BIND directives:


I can run Apache 1.3.x and IIS5 at the same time without any problems.  I 
can replicate this problem on 3 different servers.
My guess is that Apache 2.x is incorrectly detecting IIS's bind to the 
OTHER IP address on port 80, and then failing.... something in the startup 
bind/logic which was changed in the 2.x seems to be the blame at this point.

Just wondering if anyone had some thoughts, ideas before I post to 
Bugzilla.... I have not seen anyone else having similar issues when I have 
run Google web/group searches.
