Question about Computer Servers

1 Answer

Apache 2.2 I have installed Apache 2.2 on Win 3k server in our charity orgn, to be able to run PHP based BBS. But after working for a while the apache service stops, n I am forced to restart the server to restart the apache service. I checked with httpd.exe which returns the error "Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted (typically under load)." I checked today with netstat -ano command and was told that the listening is on on port : 8080 to which I had configured the Apache. Can you please identify a comprehensive free resource [as we are a non-profit] to enable me to trouble-shoot these problems? Thank you very much for your time and help Megha Adhvaryu SPRAT Society for the Promotion of Rational Thinking Rajnagar Complex Narayan Nagar Road, Paldi AHMEDABAD 380 007 Tel: 91-79-266 23 655 /66 77 Fax: 91-79-261 20 49

Re: Apache 2.2

First, is it really necessary to restart the server? can you just restart the service from Administrative tools -> Services? (Not a solution but might help a little whilst you're looking for one :)

Is there a reason why you are running Apache on 8080? Is IIS on 80? If so, I wonder if it may be stealing 8080 from Apache when the Apache worker restarts after its maximum allowed run time. As to why IIS should be doing that, I have no idea :) Also, is Apache configured for SSL? If it is, then it will be trying to use port 443 as well, as may IIS - & thus the above error message may be due to both trying to use 443 rather than 80 or 8080.

If you really can't get this working then running Windows & Linux (a LAMP installation) under VMWare or something similar may be an option. It's not as drastic as it sounds - I've done this on a laptop PC & it works!

How to set a folder with small program to run on linux+apache

Dear Rajiv

First make sure that your Apache server is running properly.
For this type http://localhost and see the result.

If you want to test PHP you can create a php test file by yourself.

Goto the www folder in apache director. create a file , name it anything.php. Edit the file and simply write "phpinfo()" without quotes . check the output.

It means that your apache server is fully capable of PHP scripting.

Cheers, Parveen
