Apache runs on :8080 but times out when changed to :80
Posted on 2009-07-10
This one has stumped me for about a week now. I have apache 2 running on a CenOS 5 box. I configured the httpd.conf file to use virtual hosts and configured the port to be 8080 for testing. Now the server is ready to go live and I cannot get apache to respond on port 80. I have the correct firewall rules, I even flushed iptables to be sure. I change everything related to port 8080 to 80 in the conf file, restarted the service and simply get a network timeout error. If I do a netstat i do see httpd listening on port 80. I do not have anything else running on port 80.
