Description of problem:
If you tell system-config-httpd to listen to an ip address, but on the default port 80, apache will not start because there is already a Listen 80 by default in httpd.conf. Then the Listen *:80 system-config-httpd will add will be in conflict with the Listen 80 of httpd.conf .
system-config-httpd doesn't seem to look if there is already a Listen in httpd.conf corresponding to the one it will add.
When trying to start httpd, you will get:
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
[ OK ]
But a: service httpd status will tell it died, but subsys was not locked.
If you told it to only listen on your ip, you will get:
(99)Cannot assign requested address: make_sock: could not bind to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80
No listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install httpd and system-config-httpd
2. Start system-config-httpd, set it to listen to all addresses or your ip but do not change the port (80)
3. Save and quit
4. Start httpd
httpd die or doesn't want to start.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
