After a failed restart, what is the output of:

# tail /var/log/httpd/error_log
# netstat -pant | grep :80
Comment 2 Fredrik Rambris 2003-09-10 16:05:12 EDT
[root@wonka root]# netstat -pant | grep :80
tcp    0*         LISTEN   1180/ppp-watch

This is the only line that's added to error_log
[Wed Sep 10 21:57:21 2003] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down

When killing pppd and ppp-watch httpd starts normaly.

Why would ppp-watch bind to port 80?

I have initscripts-6.95-1 installed.
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-09-10 16:13:55 EDT
I'm not familiar with ppp-watch, is it acting as configured? 
Comment 4 Fredrik Rambris 2003-09-10 16:45:44 EDT
I have not touched it. I don't really know what it is more than what the man
page sais. All configuration of ppp is done via redhat-config-network. I guess
it's started from ifup scripts.
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-17 05:44:47 EDT
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
