Subject RE: [users@httpd] Upgrading from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0 on Debian
Date Sun, 27 Mar 2005 18:15:46 GMT
Thank you for the answer,

Apache 1.3 in it's apachectl file writes:


and in it's httpd.conf file it writes:

PidFile /var/run/

Apache 2.0 in it's apachectl file does not have any PIDFILE statement at
all. In it's httpd.conf file it writes:

<IfModule !mpm_netware.c>              
PidFile logs/ 

This file "logs/" does not exist.

When it comes to symlinks, I am not aware that I have any symlinks i
connection with my two Apache installations.


In both the apachectl's and conf files check where is it writing the pid 
file... something like
PidFile logs/
Also remove the symlink, you have and then try to run the start the two 
and see if that gives you some hint, else show it on the mailing list, 
for us to figure.
