Fresh VPS. CentOS 5.5 + Apache + mysql. With root access.

I start httpd service. status running.

I type IP address from web browser. default page not being displayed.

My browser keeps showing Sending request. And ping takes 70 ms.

What could be the reason? My VPS provider couldnt solve the problem for last 5 hours.

Access Log is empty. I paste Error Log here:

try this on a command line, either on an ssh session in the VPS itself, or from your home computer: telnet IP_Address 80 then, type the following: GET / HTTP/1.1 Host: server_ip (2 blank lines after the Host line) apache should output the index file normally, might produce helpful errors –  Waleed Hamra Mar 3 '12 at 19:32
