Apache 2 thrashing, thrashing

Post by aeroleviat » Thu, 29 Jul 2004 15:46:52


Hi - sorry for the newbie question as I'm sure it is :(

I just installed Apache 2 on WinXP.. during install I selected 'run
only when started on port 8080' because I don't like to have it
running all the time, it's just for design/test purposes, and I later
changed the port to 80 in http.conf... but ah...

When I start it in the console, it just thrashes the hard disk
endlessly. I've had it open for about 10 minutes now and my HD
activity light has been on constantly. Tried this a couple times,
opened, waited a while then closed and tried again with same results.
Nothing in the console window, not even the 'Apache v.xx running...'
like I used to remember with 1.x (which is gone now from a reformat).
And I can't connect to the server through a web browser either... just
times out.

My system resources should be quite sufficient, I have 700mb+ RAM and
a 1.5ghz Athlon.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..

Regards,
Dave

I don't know the answer to you specific problem, but I'm curious if you
really meant to write 'changed the port to 80 in http.conf'. Shouldn't
that be 8080?


That's 10x more than enough. I'm currently running five different servers
on a 200mHz box with 72mb of ram; no problems at all.

Actually I meant httpd.conf, but I did indeed change it to 80, from
8080 (which the installation wizard set).

OK. I guess I'm just trying to figure out what 'run only when started on
port 8080' means. If you selected that option, then shouldn't you actually
start it on port 8080 if you want it to run?
