I am very new to linux. I have installed apache 2.2.21 on linux 6 platform. While I am using ./apachectl start or ./apachectl -k start command it shows that apache is started. But while i am trying to access apache default page in any browser using http://<servername>:8080 it shows page cannot be displayed.

Can any one help me on this issue? Please its urgent.

I am also enclosing the error_log file as below.

http://:8080 ??? why is there port 8080 standart is 80 and what kind of adres is that ? you should put yourdomain.com or your ip –  B14D3 Nov 28 '11 at 10:36
    
Linux 6? I believe time machine is not yet invented. Latest version of Linux is 3. You are talking about RHEL/CentOS version 6. Please correct it in your question. –  Sachin Divekar Nov 28 '11 at 10:52

There is nothing in the error log that you provided that suggests there is any problem, with apache running.

Have you really configured your system to listen on port 8080? Check the Listen statement in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf it should be something like

Listen 8080

if you have. If it says

Listen 80  

Then apache is listening on the standard port and you can contact it with http://<servername>.

Edit:

Assuming Linux 6 means RHEL6 or CentOS6 then you most likely haven't opened port 8080 on your firewall.You can open port 8080 with the following command

iptables -I INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

If that works then don't forget to save the firewall configuration with

service iptables save

yes the listening port is 8080. –  JRanjan Nov 28 '11 at 11:38
    
i have also checked http://<my_servername>:8080 but in the browser it shows page cannot be displayed. –  JRanjan Nov 28 '11 at 11:40
    
Check your firewall is allowing traffic on port 8080 - see my edit. –  Iain Nov 28 '11 at 11:44
    
i have the firewall is not running on , that means port 8080 is allowable,but still i am unable to access apache in web browser. –  JRanjan Nov 28 '11 at 16:05
    
In that case your problem lies elsewhere. –  Iain Nov 28 '11 at 16:13
