:-( localhost not found when starting apache2
Well i was gloating yesterday cause I got things working finally but it would appear I have already managed to screw things up again! :roll:
hey well those are the benefits of being a newbie i guess...
anyway, what happens was the my linux webserver was working fine yesterday serving up my php page, i could even access it from work! so i was all happy of course...
Then i went home and decided to upgrade my php from 4.3.8 to version 5. after a little trouble having to select and deselecting various packages because of compatibiility issues etc... i managed to get everything installed ok. Then i went on to install some more apache2 mods.. And then i rebooted the machine...
so far so good...
When things were back up and running however i was no longer able to access my site, even locally..
i checked whether apache was running, which is wasnt so i started it with apachectl restart
it said ok but still nothing.. so i did an apachectl extendedstatus which said that it could start cause it cant find localhost..?? :?:
i've checked my /etc/host file which just says
the share on which the documents are located still works ok, httpd2.conf still looks the same and still has the same DOCUMENTROOT set, so i'm a little flabbergasted as to what has happened??
anyone got any suggestions?
