Cannot connect to localhost

Postby waynecod » 28. July 2009 13:54

Hi,
I’m having problems with Apache server 2.2 on XP.
The server starts the service with no problems.
I get Syntax ok when I test the server configuration.
But in IE I keep getting the message ‘The page cannot be found’
In the conf. file I have:
Listen 127.0.0.1:8080 and
ServerName 127.0.0.1:8080

Here is a copy from my error.log
[Tue Jul 28 13:04:42 2009] [notice] Parent: Child process exited successfully.
[Tue Jul 28 13:04:44 2009] [notice] Apache/2.2.11 (Win32) configured -- resuming normal operations

[Tue Jul 28 13:04:45 2009] [notice] Child 7748: Starting thread to listen on port 8080.

I’ve looked through the web many having the same problem but no answers.
Any one here can help?

Which URI did you try to access?

Sure. As defined in your configuration, Apache is listening on port 8080. Thus you have to add the port to each URI.

I get an error message on starting the server: 'The requested operation has failed' and the server does not start.
