Fedora Installation :: Apache Web Server Does Not Start Automatically Unless Login
Feb 20, 2009
I have a problem with running Apache web server. I think my problem is either I can not get httpd to load automatically or it's being blocked from external unless I'm logged in, don't know which. Or, I'm completely off base. Either way, being logged in solves the problem. Now I just need to fix it. This is a brand new server running latest apache and fedora 10 (all fully patched). Loaded from source to all default (non RPM directories - apache is /usr/local/apache2/... )
I modified the existing /etc/init.d/httpd script and had it point to the /usr/local/apache2 areas.I even did a chkconfig --add httpd and show it is on for run levels 2345.The problem is that when I reboot the server httpd does not load because I can not access the website.However, the minute I login to the server as a user (non-root) it automatically loads httpd and the website works.Then, when I logout, everything is inaccessible again. I even tried to put the commands in the /etc/rc.local script (or wherever it is).Same thing happens.I know this is a simple fix. Just don't know what it is. Is it related to SElinux? However, wouldn't SElinux create access problems regardless of being logged in or not? Once I'm logged in, everything automatically fixes itself (either it's a service load or a rights filter fix).
Remember, everything works perfectly as long as I'm logged in to the server (even as a non-root user). Just the act of logging in makes the web server accessible from to the rest of the world. However, when I logout, the web server is inaccessible.
I installed apache 2.2 with centos 5.5. When I typed service httpd stop, apache stopped. Then in a minute, it automatic start again. I don't use crontab, and I tried 'chkconfig httpd off', but it still automatic start. I used 'ps -ef' to look process, I saw, httpd have PPID is 1, and then I find PID 1 have PPID 0.
I am new to Linux. I installed some weeks ago Fedora 14 via burnt iso file downloaded from official Fedora site. It was working perfectly like a charm for me until yesterday when I tried to install zend server for PHP. During my first try of installation of zend server it corrupted out my apache server and I lost apache on http://localhost. I removed all "zend-server" like stuff from "Add Remove Software" screen. Installed again apache 2 in the form of LAMP (Linux Apache Mysql Php) via terminal. Apache installed correctly and started workeing again ok on localhost. Then again I tried to install zend server from install.sh file in downloaded zend server installation. It showed me after a while like "zend server installed successfully".
I shut down my pc thinking everything is ok now. Today when I started my system, it shows me boot screen of Fedora, I select fedora and then it shows me balloon filling up for around 5-7 secs. Then all of a sudden a black screen appears up with a cursor blinking at its top left and then nothing else happens further. I cannot find login screen to my desktop anymore. I remember one thing that during reinstallation of apache from terminal, I set following command like "chkconfig --level 235 httpd" (I guess that's what I have written as per some online tutorial for LAMP). Is that cause of mine problem ot its something else?
I can connect to localhost, and get the test page.However, as soon as I install the apache PHP module, with:[root] # yum install php apache will not restart.Watching active processes with qps, I see apache tries to start, but then it crashes - hence it writes to the error log to say it's started. But there's no PID in /var/run/httpd, and I cannot connect to localhost.
I am using Kde 4.4 and I would like to start one of the applications automatically after every login to the system. How can I configure it? I remember I managed to find a dialog window in one of the previous versions, but I can't find it now.
I have it configured in the application settings to do that, and I've checked the Startup Applications and indeed it is listed there.However when I start up the icon doesn't appear in the tray and my wallpaper won't change every 10 minutes like it's supposed to until I actually go to System > Preferences and run Desktop Drapes manually.
i am using ubuntu 11.04 in my AMD machine, I have scheduled some torrent and wget downloads using crontab and sleep commands respectively. Since the download starts at 2 AM i used to leave my system ON. I would like to know if the download will automatically start from the login screen itself.(That is suppose i switch ON the system at 2 AM and never bother to login to my account.)
now my system does not connects automatically when fedora start's to eth0 i have to connect it manually by pull down menu in the beginning hostnname was dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl.cantv.net i do not remember if the last part ".cantv.net" was there.... i changed hostname "dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl" maybe ending with ".cantv.net" with system-config-network for hostname "edicta" i modified /etc/hosts by hand twice, now do not remember what i did exacly but here you can see /etc/hosts
I have an appliation which needs apache , I configured apache that works fine. The thing is that every time i start server i need to manully run the apache scripts. How can let is automatically start while the server comes up? this is the sample work around to bring the application brings up.
How would I get the SSH server to start before I've logged in?Basically, the problem I have is that if I'm connecedt to my computer remotely over SSH, and reboot the machine, I'm not able to SSH back in after it restarts. As far as I can tell, this is because the SSH server doesn't automatically start up until after I've logged in for the first time.How would I get around that? Surely that is a fairly common scenario for network admins (especially ones who have keyboardless and monitorless machines running).
I have one server with Jboss and Tomcat installed, I have to start these servers manually everytime I do reboot the server.How I could do to start Jboss and Tomcat automatically, when I do reboot the server?
I have installed FreeRadius to a Debian Linux server.I have configured an account called Support to run the Radius as I didn't want Root to be the user to run this.I want Radius to start up automatically after the system is rebooted but I don't know how to do this. I am new to Linux so please bare with me. If the system is rebooted, is it possible for the Support account to be logged in automatically? Is there a script I can create to automatically login the Support account? This may not be secure but it has been requested. Also the main question is after a reboot can the Radius be configured to automatically start without the need for someone to login? So if the system is rebooted and then goes back to login prompt, can the Radius then be running?
I have had a good search about scripts but with my limited knowledge it isn't too easy.
After reading it also said something about using rc.radiusd which will automatically start Radius after a reboot, but again I cannot understand exactly what I need to do.Please can someone help out with this and let me know if I am on the right track? Will the start-my-radius.sh script work after the system is rebooted without someone actually login and how do I get it to work?Please explain clearly as this is all a bit technical for my liking and not understanding it well!
Ok, so I have installed apache 22, mysql5.0 and proftpd1.3. When I reboot my server, the above applications do not start up automatically, and I have been trying to figure out how with out much success. know that I need to make some changes inside the init.d directory on my CentOS Server.I am running CentOS 5.4 x86_64 build.I really am not sure how to accomplish the task or where to start.
I am still pretty green when it comes to centos and linux in general. I have installed rpm and source packages before with little trouble by following the guides available on the support site and wiki for centos.I am running centos 5.4 on a virtual server.I followed the guide for installing vpopmail at URL...mailSince this is a VPS server I cannot install gnome and is why I opted for vpopmail + qmail.
The first issue I have is: I don't know how to tell qmail to start up automatically because after the install of qmail from source as the guide told me to, it did not place a startup files in the /etc/init.d, and I can't find any useful documentation on how to trouble shoot that.I try to use "chkconfig qmail on" and "chkconfig --level 345 qmail on" but both give me the error "error reading information on service qmail: No such file or directory"The version of qmail I am using is the latest 1.0.3, and the version of vpopmail is 5.5.
Vpopmail seems to be working just fine, as is the mysqlauth mod. I check the vpopmail database in mysql, and all the values I used for the domain and user show up there.The settings also show in the qmail configuration directory files for the domain.My first clue as to something being wrong was that when I send an email to the address I setup, I get nothing delivered on the server, but I also do not get any bounce backs or errors to tell me the details of what went wrong.At first I figured it was my firewall, so I disabled iptables.That did not fix it.I also tried disabling SElinux. That also made no difference.
I'm wondering how I start it automatically when I boot up the ubuntu 10.04? especially, when I created the user "postgres", I set a password to it. every time I issued "su - postgres" command, I need to give it a password.
I have configured heartbeat+DRBD on a SLES10 SP3 cluster and that's working fine except when both nodes are down and I turn on only one node. When this happens, the heartbeat don't starts automatically (the service status says it's unused, so the services, IP address and partition don't start automatically too). I can turn on the heartbeat manually (service heartbeat start) and get the services, ip address and partition initialized too, but I'd like to make it starts automatically because it's possible to have one node broken and the person that will turn on the other node can forget to manually starts the service.
-When the heartbeat is unused on the first node and I turn on the second node, the heartbeat on the first node starts automatically and everything is fine. -The command "chkconfig heartbeat on" was executed.
Where I work, the IT people have the systems setup (wrongly in my opinion) to require not just the user's username but to have the username pre-pended with regional info. Like this:Username: RegionName//UserNamePassword: ********The server I maintain doesn't require this (even though I have it authenticate through the same services as the rest of IT (active directory via ldap))The problem is I see lots of authentication errors in my apache error_log file because people are using the RegionName//UserName login
Been a very long time since I have played with Linux.Now in a new position and have setup a Nagios server running on Centos 5,5 for a NMS.How do I set apache that when I visit: whatever.org it starts Nagios.. Currently I have to go to whatever.org/nagios.
