[SIZE=2]Before I get into it, interworx rock! YEAH![/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]ok…now my issue…this past week has been hell week and I have been moving servers left and right…because of this I have had to re-install iworx a few times and there seems to be a glitch…[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]After I format the hard disks I install redhat 9 with everything…all packages are installed…[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]after the install is complete I proceed to install iworx as directed on the website except I add the -u -k flags because i guess that’s a good thing to do (?) ;)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2](i also have to manually remove a few packages because YUM fails; PHP is one of them)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Here’s my issue:[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Somewhere during the install my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file disapeers and I get random error messages saying “cannot find httpd.conf: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf does not exist”[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]To try and work around this I found another copy of httpd.conf under the iworx directory (/chroot/home/interworx/etc/httpd/httpd.conf) and just copied it to /etc/httpd/conf/.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]I’m getting occasional httpd crashes where it starts to block all requests on port 80 and SSL so then I have to manually restart the httpd service. I have done this entire process 2 times on 2 different servers and the same problem keep appearing. Any ideas?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Sorry this was so long but I just had to explain everything. I’ve done tons of google searches to make sure this question hasn’t already been answered so you guys are a last resort…[/SIZE]


I would raise a support ticket. The guys at Interworx are damn hot on responding and helping, plus you can go into more pesonal details and exchange usernames/passwords.

I would suggest that using the [SIZE=2]/chroot/home/interworx/etc/httpd/httpd.conf is not a workable solution because Interworx runs its own version of apache and not the one that the standard web-sites use, so you may find its config’d completely different, however I cannot confirm this.

Long ‘n’ Short: Speak to interworx.

I agree with everytingweb mpcomputers. Open a ticket and we’ll check it out. The httpd.conf that was in the interworx tree is a very trimmed down version of httpd.conf and meant specifically for the iworx-web apache process. It won’t work well at all for general purpose web serving.


Go it working…

thanks for your responses, if it happens again I will definately open a ticket.

For now I just copied the httpd.conf file from another running iworx server I had with the same exact configuration. This seemed to solve my problem.
