Apache2 after upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 i have network issue can not open my default web page

Asked by Clint Horn on 2010-01-11

I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.1. Now when I try to access my default web page from IE it says it can not open the page. Yet I can ping my address both IP and name and it works fine. I even have folders shared and I can access them on the ubuntu server I just can't go to a IE web page and access my site at all by typing in even the ip address. This is annoying, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

IE? As in Internet Explorer?
Have you tried accessing the Internet with an actual browser (such as Firefox, which should come installed by default)?

I am running apache2 and I can't even access http:localhost from the ubuntu server since I upgraded yet I can ping from another machine and it replies. Seems like something just needs to be turned on or updated that the upgrade changed.

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at edcenterhosted.mdanderson.edu.

    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
          moments.

    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
          connection.

    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Run: netstat -an | grep :80 # to make sure you have a process listening on port 80 (You should have a line that says 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN).

If there's nothing listening on 80, run: ps -e | grep apache2 # to make sure Apache is running (there may be more than one).

If there is something running, you might have a firewall rule blocking that traffic. Run: iptables --list INPUT to see if there are any blocks.

Post results here.

Your apache2 service is not running.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

If you get errors, post them here. If you don't get errors and it still doesn't work, check your /var/log/apache2/error.log file.

I actually got it to work. I purged apache2 and just reinstalled it. Had to re-do some minor changes but it was okay. Thanks.

Removed apache2 using purge command, then reinstalled it again. That did the trick, little more work but it did it.
