Apache not working on localhost

    Hello,

    I've noticed in ISPCONFIG that Apache was not working, but all the hosted websites are accesible... Strange.

    I've checked apache with "apachectl status" and get following:

    Code:
    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've tried to telnet to port 80 and get an error (port 21, 81, etc have no problem).

    Any idea?

    What's the output of
    Code:
    httpd -t
    ? Any errors in Apache's error log?

    The output of httpd -t is

    Code:
    Syntax OK

    Ok, any errors in Apache's error log?
    What's he output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?

    netstat shows

    Code:
    tcp        0      0 server1.xxx:www *:*                     LISTEN     32034/apache
    
    The hostname is server1.xxx.com

    I've checked the apache error log, but there aren't errors related with this (just some "File does not exist: /var/www/sharedip/search.php", etc)

    I've also checked apache config (httpd.conf), dind't found nothing strange (for example "ServerName localhost")

    If it helps Apache is version 1.3.33 using ispconfig 2.2.13.

    Apache is listening on a specific IP address only, not on all IP addresses. ISPConfig probes the Apache on the IP address 127.0.0.1. Because your Apache is not listening on 127.0.0.1, ISPConfig thinks that it's offline.

    Thanks...

    I have corrected the httpd.conf file to:

    Code:
    Listen xx.xx.xx.xx:80
    Listen 127.0.0.1:80
    and all is working now!

    Would it be better (more secure) to change it to

    Code:
    Listen 80
    I have a server with various IP, and have some IP only configured for mail, dns, etc

    Both solutions are ok. With the latter Apache will listen on all IP addresses.

    to original thread opener:im not hijacking your thread. i just have a similar problem and hate to open a new thread for the same thing.


    i have the same problem. im not exactly a noob at linux but i am at linux servers and stuff.

    httpd fails to start ive already set it to listen correctly and still nothing
    the only way i can get it to start is with
    Code:
    httpd -e DEBUG
    which doesnt give any errors or anything. after that it works percfectly. though i think i shouldnt be running it like that what should i do about it?

    and

    netstat -tap | grep http

    Code:
    # httpd -t
    Syntax OK
    #
    
    
    and

    Code:
    # netstat -tap | grep http
    tcp        0      0 *:81                        *:*                         LISTEN      2229/ispconfig_http
    #
    
    EDIT:
    though i should add this too just in case

    Did you install ISPConfig?

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    which apache
    and
    Code:
    which apache2
    ?

    It started working itself

    well thanks for your concern.
    but my apache started working it self in the night.
    i don't know what went wrong. apache just stopped i installed the apache service again and again i even installed a new windows but even that didn't worked. then in the night i started apache just to check weather its working or not and i was shocked it actually started working.
    i happened twice with me.
    i think it would be a magic.
    any way it's working now.

    I've upgraded the MySQL and when i reboot the server gracefully I didn't started.
    After executing "service httpd start" (in the ssh), then httpd status says
    Code:
    Looking up localhost
    Making HTTP connection to localhost
    socket failed: family 10 addr ::1 port 80.
    Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.
    
    lynx: Can't access startfile [url]http://localhost/whm-server-status[/url]
    
    the same thing executing apachectl
    Code:
    The 'links' package is required for this functionality.
    
    Could it be a problem of memory? the server has 512 Mb.

    Thanks!
