httpd does nto start
Last modified: 2008-04-21 15:42:00 EDT
Description of problem:
httpd does not start from system-config-services
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd as it comes with Fedora-9-Beta-i386
start httpd service from system-config-services
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to Application
2.Go to Service
3.Go to httpd
no response for very long time
httpd service should have started and the disconnect icon (plug away from
socket)should have changed to connect icon (plug in socket)
I tried enable/disable, and start/stop/restart MySQL, and the changes took
place almost immediately.
With httpd enabling and disabling was instanteneous but none of the three
options start/stop/restart worked.
While pressing restart button for httpd the status information in top right
center of the window was refreshing httpd and not restarting httpd.
Enable/disable network was quick but start/stop/restart for network was taking
about 60-90 seconds.
Full profile of the machine is at http://www/smolt.org/show?/uuid=pub_85955a62-
httpd works in httpd-2.2.8-3.x86_64 Fedora 9 Preview Release.
Today again I have tried few times but httpd does not start.
Perhaps in Fedora-9-Beta-x86_64 the problem does not exist but there is some
glitch somewhere in Fedora-9-Beta-i386 running on i686 machines.
The system just gives a message "The status of this service is unknown".
What is the output from running "service httpd start" from a root shell?
What version of httpd? (rpm -q httpd)
I logged in as root and opened terminal and this is output is as follows.
[root@SrDME ~]# service httpd start
Starting httpd: httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for SrDME
httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name,
using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
[root@SrDME ~]# rpm -q httpd
SrDME is the name of the computer.
The machine's hostname should be fully-qualified, and needs to be resolvable
(e.g. via /etc/hosts); please ask on a user support forum if you need further help.
