Setup Apache HTTP Server 2.0 To Run On Local Machine And Execute PL Scripts

Jan 24, 2014

I am 3 days new to figuring out how to get Perl scripts to run on my Windows XP box. I downloaded and installed the Apache installation file "httpd-2.0.65-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8y.msi" and the "strawberry-perl-" from the site in hopes that I could get a feedback form to work for a web site that I am working on.

Out of the many pages that I have viewed online of how to configure the Apache Server, nothing has given any favorable results with their explanations.

My last attempt was [URL] ..... where I could not get the example to work. I did the changes to the Apache file "Edit the Apache httpd.conf Configuration File" fairly easily but I must be having problems with the because I can't get it to work.

I used a different version of Perl (Strawbery from because it installed without giving me an error pop up after installation) and after copy pasting the script, in an attempt to get it working, I ended up changing it in hopes that I could get it working, shown below.

print "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

print "<phtml>";
print "<body>";
print "Test Page";
print "</body>";
print "</html>";

This is what the site says to create the program with:

print "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

print "<phtml>";
print "<body>";
print "Test Page";
print "</body>";
print "</html>";

where I assumed that "#!" meant the "C:" drive and substituted the first "/perl" with the folder the Strawbery Perl had installed itself to and left the second "/perl" in the first line thinking that it was referring to the executable in the "C:strawberryperlbin" folder.

This is the error I get when trying to get the script to run when typing "localhost/" in the address bar.

"Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Know how I can change the title of this post to read "Configuring Apache HTTP Server 2.0 to run Perl in Windows"?

Apache :: How To Setup Exe Programs To Execute Instead Of Download

May 9, 2013

I am migrating to apache httpd 2.4 on windows xp. The current server currently has exe programs that execute as cgi programs. When I try to use one of these links, apache just servers the programs as files for download. How do I configure my httpd.conf to run these instead of download them?

Execute Cgi On Lxadmin Setup

Feb 2, 2008

I'm trying to get a Movable Type installation working. Centos under HyperVM and Lxadmin...

Correct Perl version is installed. Cgi script in MT calls correct Perl install.

Perhaps it's an issue that I'm running through Lxadmin?

I run through the install - no problem. But when trying to access my install, I get a 500 error.

I'm not getting anything in the logs. Absolutely nothing on the Six Apart side.

SElinux in not running. I've tried forcing with .htaccess:
<Directory /path-to-movabletype>
Options Indexes ExecCGI

Has anyone been through this... or perhaps just some feedback.

It's a common problem - but the solution isn't typical apparently (for me that is).

Apache :: Local Server Works Once And Then Won't Again

Oct 3, 2013

I found a socket available other than 80 which would not allow me to use. I set it in the conf file as 1800 and then go to apache/bin directory and load httpd.exe. When I go to the browser, I have to type in http://localhost:1800 for it to work once. If I close the browser and try again, or I try a php file, it says it can't find localhost. I have to stop httpd.exe and reload, then it will work once.

Do I have to find a way to use socket 80 for it to work?

Apache :: Unable To Set Up Password Protection On HTTP Server

Apr 24, 2014

I'm trying to set up password protection on an Apache HTTP server, and it's not working.

First, the environment: Apache 2.4.4 installed with XAMPP Control Panel 3.2.1 under Windows 7 Professional.

http.config says "AllowOverride All."

The .htaccess file in the protected directory says:

htpasswd -c .htpasswd samples

htpasswd prompted me for the password twice, and I entered it twice. When it quit I had a file named .htpasswd in the subsidy directory. I typed it and its contents looked correct according to the examples I've seen.

Then I restarted Apache and tried to load a page from the directory. The browser simply prompted me for the username and password over and over.

The Apache error log says, "AH01617: user samples: authentication failure for "/subsidy/filename.html": Password Mismatch."

I deleted the .htpasswd file and ran htpasswd again, specifying a different (very simple) password. I also confirmed that caps lock was not on both before and after. I restarted the server, tried to load a page, and got the same problem.

Apache seems to think I'm entering the wrong password, but that seems impossible when I've just defined it myself -- and I've tried twice, intentionally choosing a very simple password the second time. If the message means what it says, the cause must be something very different from the obvious one.

Apache :: Load Balancing / HA With HTTP Server And JBoss AS 7

Nov 22, 2013

I am tried to integrate Apache HTTP server and JBoss app server 7 with mod_jk module plugin in Apache.I have two instances of Jboss running and Apache server sends requests to them.I have added following code in "httpd.conf" of Apache:


LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/

JkWorkersFile "D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/conf/"
JkShmFile "D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/logs/mod_jk.shm"
JkLogFile "D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/logs/mod_jk.log"

[Code] ....

But, though I have configured this way, when my worker1 goes down,Apache is not sending requests to worker2 and I get "Service Temporarily Unavailable" message.

Apache Down With 503 Error / Http Requests Get Redirected / Is Server Hacked

Jun 4, 2009

My Linux Server's Http Daemon (Apache) would stop serving websites ever so often, as soon as apache is restarted the error fixes iteself only to resurface within few hours.

The apache process would still be running i.e. apache does not die but no websites hosted on my server would be accessible from browser. And when this happens the apache logs do not log any http requests.

Instead when this happens all http requests to my server would be redirected to some weird Trojan website and my Norton Antivirus would show an Alert/Warning, for example;
"Browser exploit at was blocked"
Risk Name: MSIE WebViewFolderIcon ActiveX Control BO

or another error like;
"Auto-Protect has detected Trojan.Fakeavalert".

At first i thought the problem could be with my Laptop/ISP so i logged on to the server via SSH and opened try to open a website using command line "lynx" and it shows following error;
"Alert!: HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable".

Now if i assume my laptop were to be infected, then as soon as i restart my apache and visit eveything returns to normal with no such warnings. Why do i see those norton error messages only when apache is down with 503, and when apache is down with 503 how come the http requests always get redirected to some suspicious websites and nothing gets logged in apache error log?

I think my server is being attacked causing http to get unresponsive and thereafter http requests to my server are redirected to some malicious website, is this correct?

Also, i suspect this is a php script exploit as some customers have reported that google have blocked their website due to security reasons, i found <iframe> tage inserted in some php pages which i fixed.

Also, another thinh i noticed;
when apache responds with the 503 it is referencing PHP 5.1.4 in the header response:

[root@]# curl -I (my server ip)
HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable
Server: Apache
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.1.4
Retry-After: 20

I am running PHP 4.3.9m why does apache responds with PHP 5.1.4 when this 503 error surfaces?

Also, since my apache was dowan with 503 error a customer mailed in today saying;
"It seems that my site is regularly down, and the winlogon virus is involved."

I suspect this is again due to the fact that http requests start getting redirected?

Apache And IIS On Same Machine

Oct 29, 2008

I was using apache on my old xp machine but recently got a new computer, vista 64 bit which comes with IIS server.

I am familiar with html/css and starting to learn php, asp etc. Am I correct in assuming that it would be good to setup both Apache and IIS on my machine so that I can test database driven sites on my system, because I will want to work on many client websites who some will use windows/IIS hosts and others apache.

Or is it that with just IIS, I can test all sites in my dev environment since IIS supports everything apache does and more?

I am not sure if when developing a site for a client with a linux/apache host there is a lot of apache configuration that I would not be able to test on my local IIS server?

In fact, I am not even sure if a web programmer would need to do anything different at all dependant on which server type their code was running on.

Thttpd + Apache On Same Machine - Locking

Feb 6, 2008

I'm running apache to serve PHP files on (/home/www/) and thttpd to serve images on (/home/www/images)

thttpd runs on a different IP than apache, apache only listens to its IP.

After doing this, the number of apache processes decreased significantly, however performance has gone down, and apache is starting to crash very frequently (swapping).

Could there be a file-locking issue? Do I have to separate the images folder from the www folder?

Apache :: Accessing Host Running On Virtual Machine

Jul 25, 2014

I have an Apache server running on a virtual machine and I want to be able to access the pages it serves from a browser running on the host OS.

I am using OracleVM virtualbox as my VM platform.
I am using windows 7 as my host OS.
I am using ubuntu as my guest OS.

I have managed to set up a virtual host so that it works from browsers running in the guest OS (ubuntu)

But I cannot get it to serve these pages to a browser running in the host OS windows.

The config file in the apache2/sites-available and apache2/sites-enabled has the following config for the virtual host I am trying to access.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName testsite
DocumentRoot /var/newserver
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks

Apache :: Slow Download Speeds On Windows Machine

Aug 27, 2010

Apache seems to have a maximum client download speed of 5Mb/s. That too after I use these commands:

# Improve file transfer speeds on Windows Machines
EnableSendfile Off
EnableMMAP Off

Which without, the speeds are even slower!

I know for sure the server I am running Apache on can go to much higher speeds (2MB/s to even 12MB/s) because I tested it via FTP.

Apache :: Capturing Internal Apache Errors Return Custom HTTP Status

Nov 15, 2013

Server Version: Apache/2.2.22 (Unix)

On our production service, we've been getting numerous malformed POST requests to some of our CGI scripts that are showing up as 500 errors in our logs. They are malformed in the sense that the actual content length doesn't match the Content-Length specified in the request.

Here's the most trivial example I can come up with that reproduces the problem for us:

POST /some_valid_alias HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Arbitrary/1.0
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=---------------------------41184676334
Content-Length: 769

In addition to the 500 error in the access log, we see the corresponding error in the error log:

(70014)End of file found: Error reading request entity data

Based on the nature of the POST request and the error response, it does appear that Apache is doing the right thing here.

The POST never actually makes it as far as the script being targeted (/some_valid_alias in the above example); in other words, Apache returns 500 to the client, writes the error to the error log and never executes the script.

Is there a way to capture/avoid internal Apache errors like 70014, and return some other HTTP status besides 500 (like 403)? It's particularly annoying in our case, because our server sends us an email for all 500 errors.

So far, our best "defense" against these 500 errors is to disallow POST for these aliases, which normally just ignore the POST data anyway (when the request is not malformed):

RewriteRule ^/(some_valid_alias)(.*)$ $1$2 [R]

But this won't work for all our scripts, because in some cases we do want to permit POST.

Apache :: 503 On HTTP And Folder Only

Oct 9, 2012

Suddenly on a particular website (possibly following an easyapache php minor version update) if I specify a folder rather than a specific file I get a 503 response.

If I do the same on https it's ok. But http always gets a 503.

If I specify a file it's fine, but the folder always hits a 503.

I have removed the htaccess file and php.ini to rule that out and indeed they weren't factors - it seems like it goes wrong before reading the htaccess file.
