Subject Re: [users@httpd] problem getting Apache 2 to start up
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2003 16:29:49 GMT

the error you are seeing looks to me like you are trying to use a port
that is already in use.  I've never run HP-UX, but on my Linux box this
command will tell me what program is binding to the web port:

# netstat -nap | grep :80 | grep LISTEN
tcp        0      0    *              
LISTEN      1560/webcached

As you can see, my web cache daemon (pid 1560) is using it.

Hope this helps!

We recently upgraded from HP Apache 1.3 to HP Apache 2.4.3 on a HP-UX
11i box.  We are an ISP and run multiple virtual hosts on a single IP.
After we first installed the server it started up fine - but after I
added each V-host container - it stopped working.  I have gone through
the log files and directorys one by one 4 times.  Please note that it
has worked at least once since all of the V-hosts were added but on
Chrismas eve - it stopped and it hasn't worked since.  I even set the
loglevel to debug so maybe i could get a better error message but it
actually stopped logging anything.....the error message i get when i
to start the webserver is the following....
"Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs"
I can't figure out what is going on - we have another server with the
same configuration that is working - but this one will not.  I have
through the log files to make sure the permissions match the user that
runs apache and everything is set to work - but it's not....
I also tried chaning the port to something else just in case there was
something else going on with Port 80 but I get the same error message.
I should also note that the box has been rebooted 2 times and apache
still will not start.
Any insight you can give me would be greatly appreciate it
