Problem installing Apache httpd on CentOS 6.5

Post by pingpong » 2014/02/25 20:52:29

I installed httpd, but it cannot start and cannot connect in web browser.

I cannot uninstall it, (try to uninstall and re-install). tried update it, but still is not working.

Below is some info:

[root@localhost ~]# curl http://localhost
curl: (7) couldn't connect to host

[root@localhost ~]# /sbin/service httpd status
[root@localhost ~]#

It doesn't display anything

[root@localhost ~]# chkconfig --level 235 httpd on
error reading information on service httpd: Invalid argument

[root@localhost ~]# /sbin/service httpd start
[root@localhost ~]#

try to start it, it deosn't display anyting

[root@localhost ~]# yum info httpd

The OS frozen the first time I try to install Apache web (yum install httpd -y), I forcelly restart it.

Thanks in advance. Any idea?

Did you check your firewall settings?

Is port 80 open through the firewall?

You may also try Virtualmin GPL which does it all for you and even provides a browser based interface to maintain your entire machine/server besides other things.....

Virtualmin URL:

Also check if networking is enabled and active (It is disabled by default).

This FAQ might help too

I can visit internet from CentOS guest. I can also connect to Windows host from CentOS guest.

I tried the link below:

I fixed that by re-installing os.
