Apache dead, reinstallation nothing
Apache2.0, w2k

 12:23 pm on May 10, 2005 (gmt 0)

After four months of fully functioning, in Friday evening, Apache has died.
I reinstallated it, even I took new verion 54 but it is the same.
If I want to access, I see, that my browser communicate with Apache HTTP Server, but it does respond nothing.

What can I do if I dont want to install IIS?
Thanks for answers, please, use basic english, because I m from the Czech Republic.

Hi Smee,

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

What else changed Friday night before this problem?

Did you upgrade anything else? If you did not upgrade or change any other software, this might be a hardware problem. If you did upgrade other software, then that may be the cause.

I installed the NOD32 antivirus, but after I killed it completely and I returned back to AVG.

I installed IIS, for see what can happen but it is the same: in my firewall I see, that http port between browser and IIS is opened but it is all. IIS does not respond.

I tried PHPTriad with Apache1.3. It s the only one, who go, but I want to return to good old Apache2.0.

Which hardware problems you mean?

Well, a bad NIC would cause such problems, but then Apache 1.3 would also fail.

I'd suggest uninstalling Apache and IIS, and then deleting or renaming the Apache directory to remove all traces of the old install.

What happens with your browser when you attempt to access you comp like a server?

There are (were) known issues with NOD32 and Apache, so if that didn't get fully removed, it could be a problem. Do a search for 'nod 32 apache problem' and you'll find some results.

I uninstalled Apache and I have put it in another directory, but nothing changed :(((.

What happens? It is same for both Firefox and IE. "Web site found" and it begin to load the page. And it stay so for ever.
I can close the window normally or, if I want to see "Cannot find the server", I can stop the Apache service in the Apache Monitor.

NOD32 vs Apache: but I tried to uninstall NOD32 completely, even I deleted the files in the NOD32's directory. So, how can so dead program stop the server?
It is possible that some libraries stayed in WINNT's directory?

You are working from a scratch NEW conf file?


 3:34 pm on May 11, 2005 (gmt 0)


if you mean httpd.conf, always when I reinstalled Apache, I kept to it his own, new, freshly created httpd.conf.

My good old httpd.conf I have zipped somewhere.
