    Squirell mail configuration..


    hello all,
    i have configured imap and want to use squirell mail with it.
    the httpd server is not running and when asked to start it just exits after starting
    giving the following error..

    --Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs--

    regards

    That means another application is already using port 80. Maybe you have apache as well as apache2 running?

    Does:
    Code:
    apachectl stat
    show you anything?

    well i tried running these commands, which one of my friend told me to do, which will tell if any other process is trying to listen to port 80, but no fruits there either,

    netstat -ap | grep 80

    i got the output
