Subject [users@httpd] Apache on Win2K won't respond
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 17:58:03 GMT

I'm new to the list but a long time user of apache - great piece of
software.  I've never needed this list before but I seem to have run
into a rather odd problem I can't solve.

I downloaded and ran the .MSI installer of 2.2.4 on one of my Win2K
boxes.  I moved IIS over to port 8080 and installed apache on port 80.
The installation went off without a hitch - the install log has no
errors at all.  The first thing I did was cranked the log level up to
debug and restart the server.  The error log now contains the following:

[Thu Mar 15 12:56:49 2007] [notice] Parent: Received restart signal --

So, everything seems fine... so far as I can see.

The problem is, the server _NEVER_ responds to a single get command.
Here's everything I tried so far:

- I've tried IE and Firefox, no difference... they just sit and wait
until they timeout.

- I've tried telneting to the server.  I get connected but any get
command I've tried results in no response and no disconnection... it
just sits there like I haven't typed anything.  If you stop the server
while telneted to it, you get disconnected - so I know it's the right

- I've stopped the server, done a netstat (it wasn't there), restart the
server and done a netstat (now it's there).

- The access log is _completely_ empty... no help there.

- I've disabled all firewalls and networking protection - including
uninstalling my virus scanner.

- I've made sure IIS works on port 80 - so I know it's not a firewall

- I've tried reconfiguring the server for a different port (8081), no

- To be safe I've rebooted after messing with firewalls and uninstalling
virus scanners, etc.  (_the_ windows solution didn't work)

- I've even reinstalled the thing _several_ times.

I'm running out of ideas... anyone else have any I haven't thought of?
