Subject [users@httpd] error after installation on WINXP SP2 : [crit] (OS 10022) WSASocket failed to open the inherited socket
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2005 09:43:46 GMT
Hi all,

I'm new to the list and new to apache.
I tried to install Apache 2.0.54 but with no success.

The things I have done are :

Download "apache-2.0.54-no_ssl.exe" installer from the download site of 
apache. (I downloaded the .msi too but the windows installer does not 
recognize the file and I don't know why).

Well, the installation seems to be OK on  my computer (WinXP SP2) with 
the .exe installer BUT :

After the installation apache2 is started automatically as a service. I 
tried with mozilla to see the index page : but there 
was no response.
When I looked to the error log file, I get a lot of error messages :

[Thu Sep 15 10:54:43 2005] [notice] Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) configured -- 
resuming normal operations
[Thu Sep 15 10:54:43 2005] [notice] Server built: Apr 16 2005 14:25:31

[Thu Sep 15 10:54:43 2005] [crit] (OS 10022) invalid argument  : Child 
3220: setup_inherited_listeners(), WSASocket failed to open the 
inherited socket.
[Thu Sep 15 10:54:44 2005] [error] Parent: child process exited with 
status 3 -- Aborting.

These messages are comming in loop.

I tried to search in Google and some people seemed to have the same 
problems. To fix it, they disabled either LMHOSTS or NETBIOS in their 
TCP/IP settings. I tried it but it doesn't work.

Does anybody experienced the problem and have a tip ?

Thank you for any help,

Jean LEE
