We are facing apache problem on one of our server.
It is getting restarted automatically within 30 seconds.
Below are the logs.
Please let us know the solution if any asap.
================================================= Feb 14 04:57:00 server monit: 'apache' failed, cannot open a connection to INET[127.0.0.1:80] via TCP Feb 14 04:57:00 server monit: 'apache' trying to restart Feb 14 04:57:00 server monit: 'apache' stop: /etc/init.d/httpd Feb 14 04:57:01 server monit: 'apache' start: /etc/init.d/httpd ==================================================
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:
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):
I am having an issue where I have a server that Directadmin is installed on. I go to the a url that is on the server and all i see is the default page of apache saying congrats, it is installed. Although there is no file like that in the public_html any longer and I can see my files in the public_html folder of that specific site.
I'm building a new server for a predominantly php5/mysql5 website and was wondering which version of apache to put on. I know there are some issues with PHP and Apache in MPM, but what's the performance comparison between Apache 1.3 and Apache 2 Prefork?
I am trying to install dedicated web server on my Slackware 12.0.0 machine. I am a novice in Linux, but succeeded in MySQL & proFTPd installation. The problem now in httpd compiling.
I downloaded the latest Apache 2.2.9, but it needs Apache Portable Runtime 1.3.2 installed. I downloaded 1.3.2 version and run ./configure

After that I am trying make and have error at the end:

I moved to SLHost some time around January. The first couple of months were okay. However, the last two months have been hellish. This month alone the server was down June 1, 3, 4, 16 (for 13 hours) and, again, today.
anyone else having the same experience with SLHost?
I just setup a new pop account in Outlook 2007 and provided all the proper details as I have on other pop accounts I have setup. I am constantly getting blocked by the firewall on the server (CSF + LFD) and I am 100% positive I am using the right password. This happens every time I setup a new pop account and I don't know why.
We are having this problem with ecatel, as they still have not helped us after 4 days of asking to help improve on the problems we are having right now with SSH.
Problem: SSH can not be accessed. It can not be restarted in WHM. Firewall has been disabled just incase it's the one blocking it.
Retarting SSH in cPanel returns the message

I tried running [url]It just brought me this message

The message says it OK. But it isn't. When I access SSH, is still not accessible. Restarting it causes the same error message as above.
I updated cPanel, software and RPMs to latest stable. I know reinstalling "forcibly" SSH rpms could help, but cPanel 11 does not have that option.
I have been using my Server for a decent while, All of a sudden of the last month it has decided that it wants to play a game.
"Spamd" keeps failing and automagically restarts.
It restarts and works, But then Fails once again a few hours later. One morning I woke up to 7 error messages with the same service. By Restarting Exim it resolves the issue but it happens hours later. I have tried mostly of what I can think of.
Does anyone have any other thoughts on this issue and how it can be resolved?
Cpanel installed on Centos 5.2 on a dedicated server.
This morning, I received multiple emails about services being restarted. About 20 minutes apart, with nothing that I coudl see going on with the server, I had multiple services fail and restart.
How do I trouble shoot this to see if there is a problem?
At 6:21 The following services failed: httpd lfd httpd cpsrvd lfd and I received emailed messages similar to these (obviously the port and service name were didfferent in each email). cpsrvd failed @ Sat Nov 15 06:21:29 2008. A restart was attempted automagically. Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 2086 Then, at 6:42 The following services failed: cpsrvd cpsrvd httpd lfd httpd lfd and I received emailed messages similar to these (obviously the port and service name were didfferent in each email). cpsrvd failed @ Sat Nov 15 06:21:29 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.
an inexpensive VPS host and based on reviews on this forum, went with Web Wide Hosting.
I had a smooth signup and thanks to Jon at WWH, managed to get a payment snafu with Paypal resolved smoothly.
However, I've been struggling a lot with getting most recommended steps to actually work in my VPS and I'm getting increasingly frustrated.
The latest problem I have is that trying to install Perl modules fails with a "cannot allocate memory" error. First google hits suggest increasing memory, which really isn't an option for me right now. More puzzling is the fact that both HyperVM and user_beancounters suggest I have enough headroom atleast to install perl modules!

if you were to be presented with a choice to run Apache 1 or Apache 2 given you'd have more or less the same support requests etc, and the same underlying user requirements to implement either one or the other, which one would you choose and why?
I noticed that Hsphere Parallels control panel 3.2 release as may well other control panels, offers such possibility. Personally I've been educated from senior members of previous organizations to appreciate Apache 1 as the defacto version of the web hosting industry (choice here being apache 1 and 2, not IIS or any other web servers) Could you kindly simply attempt to enlighten me given, indeed support for both will/might remain the same in the future?
I am facing while upgrading the current Apache version 2.2.11 to Apache 2.4.4. IIS 7.5 on Windows Web Server 2008 R2 is not redirecting requests to the Apache 2.4.4 which is on Windows Server 2003 R2. I checked the access and error logs of Apache 2.4.4 and there is no entry. The existing 2.2.11 is working completely fine with IIS 7.5. IIS is working as a load balancer in my environment, takes the https requests and forwards that to Apache, then it goes to the App servers. Here, self signed certificate is used between the Load balancer and the Web server.
I have followed exact same configuration as it was used in Apache 2.2.11 but installed it with a different port (444), later changed it to 443 before running Apache 2.4.4 as a service, turning off the Apache 2.2.11 service. And also, my Apache 2.4.4 is working completely fine when I access it through the Web Server level URL (through the server machine name). But it throws me an error 502 when I hit the Load Balancer level URL. Here is the complete error:
"502 - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server. There is a problem with the page you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed. When the Web server (while acting as a gateway or proxy)contacted the upstream content server, it received an invalid response from the content server."
how I can solve the issue? I am stuck with this portion for about 2 weeks now, it's really urgent to get it solved!
My observation that came through lots of trial and error, I believe that this has something to do with Windows registry!! I came to this conclusion as I uninstalled the existing Apache 2.2.11 and installed it back again, it throws me the same error that I am getting for Apache 2.4.4. Then, I matched it with the other web server, found out some differences in the registry created for 2.2.11 and changed in this one accordingly- now 2.2.11 worked fine in this web server.
I currently have a dedicated server running centOS5 and webmin. With help of folks here
I was able to bind additional IP numbers using webmin.
I have a small problem now. The idea of binding the IPs was so that I could create "true port 80" shoutcast connections on the new IP numbers. However, when I try this I am taken to the control panel home page (home page to that server). The config on the shoutcast server is set properly (using proper IP #) as I have been able to listen to a stream using the new ip number's (higher ports), but not the main IP number.
My questions, I hope, are simple.
1. Am I able to use these additional IP numbers for Shoutcast Port 80 (true port 80 - only one per IP #)?
2. If yes, do I have to make Apache use ONLY my main IP number, thereby releasing the others for Port 80 use? If so, how do I do this.
