Hi Jennifer,
What version of apache and OS ? I don't think your apache error_log will show a ping...that is another service on the web server that makes a ping reply occur. You can stop apache and the server will still reply to a ping request.


Surely try Petre's idea...that tells you a bunch if successful.

Where are you again in your trouble shooting ?

Telnet or ssh to your server and at the shell open
$>lynx http://ip.of.your.server    (enter)    "q" quits

Does the text only web page come up ?

Also same idea -

$>lynx http://ip.of.your.server/fakefile.html look for a fake file you know does not exist...

Now check your error_log for apache. You should see a
DATE [client 24.239.83.18] File does not exist: /webserverroot/location/fakefile.html


All this will tell you that Apache is running and taking requests. Port number. Errors are logging.

Maybe your default server and 1st virtual server are messed up. The adding http:// in IE did not help ? Strange ? ;(

Should be another post - - FYI for the group. I have been using www.apachetoolbox.com ATB for a while. A nice easy script that compiles a bunch of mods for Apache along with PHP and MySQL Apache 1.3.31. I am in the middle of testing the Apache pack called XAMPP at http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html Apache2 with all the bells and whistles. Very successful so far. Try it out, if you are looking for LAMP. Strange install if you have used rpm or
"tar/make/make install" to install. Just untar it in /opt/lampp and go. Make sure you know where all your helper apps are like Perl and ftp server are located... I was very skeptical. XAMPP gives you a full LAMP nicely PRE-configured.
