Description of problem:
When configuring a server to only listen to port 80 on the loopback
interface using 'Listen 127.0.0.1:80' this causes the following error
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
127.0.0.1 port 80
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Edit httpd.conf and add the Listen line shown above
2. Start server
Actual Results: Server fails to start - error appears in syslog
Expected Results: Server start
This is caused by the repeat Listen directive at line 397. Comment
this out and things should be fine.
The problem is really one of the way the httpd.conf file is commented
- the commented listen directives at line 175 give no indication that
there is an uncommented directive at 397.
It's a good point, but changing the default httpd.conf in an erratum
is somewhat annoying since the new file would be created as
httpd.conf.rpmnew for anyone who updated. Certainly just to fix a
comment, it's not worth it... so I'll just mark this
CLOSED->CURRENTRELEASE since the httpd.conf shipping in RHEL3 doesn't
have this issue.
