Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache installation problem -socket address usage
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2006 16:33:55 GMT

Please tell us what OS you are using? - we need to know 
this if you want help.

As allready mentioned, only one application can attach 
itself to one port address.

It appears you may allready have a web server listening on 
port 80 unless you are not starting apache as root.


In theory, theory and practice are the same;
In practice they are not.
