Subject [users@httpd] Newbie: Problem with new Apache installation on XP Home
Date Fri, 02 Jan 2004 22:27:15 GMT
Hello,
Can someone help, please?
I've just installed Apache 2.0.48 on Windows XP Home.
At installation time I selected a domain and IP address of "localhost" and I
installed Apache as a service.
The installation procedure finished by telling me that the installation was
successful.
However, whenever I try and start the server I get an error message saying
that the action failed.
The logs show the following:

    Listen setup failed
    [Fri Jan 02 21:30:37 2004] [crit] master_main: create child process
failed. Exiting.
    [Fri Jan 02 21:30:37 2004] [notice] Parent: Forcing termination of child

As you can see, the error logs state that there is a syntax error on line
120 of httpd.conf.
Here is the original line 120:

    Listen 80

I've also tried:

    Listen 127.0.0.1:80
    Listen localhost:80

But to no avail.
What should I set it to?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Frank.
