View Full Version : php installation

03-24-2003, 10:04 PM

in the past ive used asp for all my server side stuff, but in the interests of broadening horizons im now teaching myself php. so its all new to me:
Apache installed fine on my pc initially, afterwards i tried to install php, i edited the php.ini and http.config files as per instruction but when i try http:localhost:8080 now i get 'page not found' and when i try to launch apache from the start menu now i get this error:

only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port)
is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Note the errors or messages above, and press the <ESC> key to exit. 27...ttttttttttt-->

any help would be much appreciated

unless you changed it Apache runs on port 80

That means that apache or another webserver/script is listening on port 8080 already , i.e apache is probably already running & you will need to restart apache for the httpd.conf changes to take effect.

ctrl-alt-delete to see if apache is running , if you can end the process do so then try again, if apache is installed as a service then go to control panel > administrative tools > services and restart apache from there.

To see if you configuration of PHP is OK - open a DOS prompt and
cd c:\apache\bin
apache.exe -T

(or is it -t ?) one of the pair , that will gove you a syntax check of your config.
