    Debian/Apache error message


    Hi all!

    I am new to the ”server side” of GNU/Linux, but I managed to install Debian on an old laptop, and open up the correct ports for ssh and http. So, I now have a functioning server! However, I get an error from Apache when I reload it, it looks like follows:

    [Wed Dec 01 21:05:48 2010] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
    httpd not running, trying to start
    (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs
    failed!


    Now, having said (typed) that:

    1) It works - despite this message

    2) I have Googled my a** off, and found that I am by no means alone in this. Sadly though, none of the results I found with the help of Google helped me solve this riddle.

    Now, this is not the end of the world, I can host my sites, and like I said, it works. BUT! Being who I am, I would like to LEARN why this message pops up, and what I can do to make things right.

    This started after I decided to try to host more than one site on the same ip by the way.

    My ports.conf looks like this:

    NameVirtualHost *:80
    Listen 80


    My files in sites-enabled starts off with:

    <VirtualHost *:80>

    I would appreciate any help to solve this little mystery, thanks for reading this,

    Sounds like you have something else listening on port 80, another webserver maybe?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
