Apache stopped working

Postby koni » Wed Jul 22, 2009 4:33 pm

Hello
[root@Freesco] rc_httpd restart
Stopping thttpd.... Done
Starting control HTTP server... Done port 82
Starting public HTTP server... Done port 80

I downloaded "dapache_1.3.27_dingetje" from dingetje's link and kernel from lightning . I did configured it and it worked . When my location had power blackout, it stopped to work and on restart It displayed the above which I thought was not right for the apache. I will attach report if needed. Any ideas?

A report.txt is going to be required as it looks like Apache is not starting at all and the built in web server is running instead. Which possibly if you have a floppy disk in the machine it booted and is running off of the floppy ?

Sorry you are correct there are no attachments in this forum area as they are almost never needed. Please make a single post in the main 03x support section and attach the report there for this thread and I will look at it there.
In the future we will make some changes to allow attachments in this section as they are occasionally needed.

Looking at the report it appears there is definitely a problem of some kind.
So here are the various and possible reasons Apache is not running.

In any of the various cases I recommend backing up your current Apache configuration so it can be put back in place easily.
Code: Select all
cd /usr/local/apache/conf/
cp httpd.conf httpd.conf.bak
sync

There are some old versions of the apache package around that are not compatible with the newer versions of the 03x series. The incompatibility caused Apache to run fine when installed but fail after the machine was rebooted once. This problem can be solved by reinstalling the package with one of the updated Apache packages that is on my web site and I recommend installing the beta "a" version.
Code: Select all
pkg -i http://lewys-spot.dyndns.org/packages/0.3.x/beta/apache_1.3.27a_dingetje


If the machine has been rebooted a number of times since Apache was installed then I would reboot the machine into DOS and run "scandisk" on the drive along with a surface scan and see if there is any file corruption and then reinstall the newer Apache package if it still does not start running.

Also if you ever reinstall FREESCO on this machine the official ext2 package that is available in the package menu when running from a floppy is HIGHLY recommended as it will increase your file system dependability and throughput speed when you move the system to a hard drive.
