Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.0 starts but won't serve documents
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2006 14:50:24 GMT
Hi all, just wondering if anyone here has seen this problem before or has an
idea what could be the root cause - other forums and Google have turned up

- Apache 2.0 running on XP Pro (laptop)
- httpd.conf unchanged from the standard distribution, except that:
-- I've used Win32DisableAcceptEx (the server was crashing and logging
several AcceptEx errors per second otherwise)
-- I've loaded PHP as a module (standard lines copied from the many web
posts on the subject)

My entire setup was working until recently, when it stopped serving pages.
Now the firefox "page loading" icon just keeps turning without the page
loading or giving a "web page not found" error. It can sit there for upwards
of 30 minutes, not doing anything.

I've tried changing the port Apache listens on (eg to 8888, connecting with
http://localhost:8888) - no joy.

The confusing thing is that the error log is blank, other than the usual
start-up notices (none of which is out of the ordinary). Access.log is also
blank - does this mean that the request hasn't even got through to the
server, or just that the page hasn't been served successfully?

Any pointers on what I could do to trace the fault would be really
