Subject [users@httpd] Apache cannot start anymore
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2003 07:54:46 GMT
Hi all,

Yesterday our webserver was under attack and since than it cannot start
anymore. Iam sure the attack has ended, and the system is stable again.
Everytime I try to start apache with: 
/etc/init.d/apache start
I get:
Starting web server: apache.
But after that when I try do a apachectl status
Looking up localhost
Making HTTP connection to localhost
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile http://localhost/server-status

I have already tried rebooting the machine, and I've tried reinstalling
apache, but none of this works.
Does anyone have any idea what more I can do???
