    Solved

    Hi topdog,


    Thanks for your advice.


    Problem already solved as follows;

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
    Code:
     * Stopping apache 2.0 web server...                                         [ ok ] 
    
    $ sudo killall apache2
    No complaint

    $ sudo netstat -l | grep www
    No printout


    $ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
    Code:
     * Forcing reload of apache 2.0 web server...                                       Apache/2.0.55 mod_ssl/2.0.55 (Pass Phrase Dialog)

    $ netstat -l | grep www
    Code:
    tcp6       0      0 *:www                   *:*                     LISTEN
