httpd.conf configuration question

Postby texican » 07. May 2007 20:40

If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.

I am trying to set up a web server for an internal company website. Here's the pertinent facts.

-- XAMPP is installed and starts fine
-- I can ping the server from my laptop, and vice-versa
-- I cannot access the website, instead I get a "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error" message.

Here are some lines from the log file:

Mon May 07 11:39:27 2007] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico

Any thoughts?

The error appears in the title bar of Internet Explorer on the laptop which is attempting to access the server.

This is what makes me think it is a problem with httpd.conf -- the connectivity is there, but something is not letting the laptop get in.

Thank you!

An error 500 is written under each circumstance into the error log.

So, if you have an error 500 and no log entry, is this an error from your XAMPP Apache?

(And can you see this request in the access log?)

OK, I understand.

What do you understand the meaning of this error message to be?

[Mon May 07 11:51:10 2007] [warn] RSA server certificate is a CA certificate (BasicConstraints: CA == TRUE !?)
[Mon May 07 11:51:10 2007] [warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `localhost' does NOT match server name!?


Would this be a problem causing the issue described above?

I'm not sure exactly what log this is, but I found this:

/var/log/apache2/access.log2

This file contained only this:

127.0.0.1 - - [12/Mar/2007:10:51:45 -0500] "GET /cosis/style_images/bg.gif HTTP/1.1" 404 298 "http://www.picrun.com/style.css" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2) Gecko/20060601 Firefox/2.0.0.2 (Ubuntu-edgy)"


There was also an access.log.1, which was empty.

Also on /var/log/apache2 I found a recent file called error.log.6.gz. When I gunzipped it, it contained this:

I appreciate your help more than you know.

The XAMPP logfiles are somewhere in:
/opt/lampp/...

OK.

1st:
The error appears in the title bar of Internet Explorer on the laptop which is attempting to access the server.

Try now to access your server from your laptop.

2nd:
I got it: /opt/lampp/logs/access_log.

Then open this log and search for the line from this access and post this line.
(ip must be from your laptop and timestamp must be now)

OK. done.

I tried several times and none of these attempts is registered in the file /opt/lampp/logs/access_log.

In fact what I see is that the only attempts that have been registered at allare from the IP 127.0.0.1 (loopback?).

I am not sure how to interpret this...any thoughts?

Then you access another server from your laptop an not your XAMPP server.

I can do that, no problem.

So if I try to get some conclusions it seems that:

a) the problem cannot be reduced to a problem with the configuration file (at least not yet) since it seems I'm not even registering an access attempt.

b) The problem is not with physical connectivity (I can ping each box from the other)

You agree? If so, it does narrow it down, but I'm not sure where to go from here.

OK folks, I figured it out. This discussion really helped me focus on the right issues, and it ended up being a problem with the fact that we use a proxy server for all web traffic -- that is what screwed me up.

My adding an exception into my Internet Explorer, I got it to work. I'm going to work with my IT to get a permanent domain name assigned which will be a permanent solution.

Thanks Wiedmann.
