Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to configure Apache and it works fine when I use server host name. if I open hostname:8080 - it shows me the default page. However if I use ip address, it hangs for an infinite time. I also have JBoss installed on my machine:

In httpd.conf I use the following configuration:

Listen ip_address:8080
ServerName ip_address:8080

Does anybody know what may cause Apache hanging with ip address? I use Apache 2.0.64 version with mod_jk and ssl-on

In error.log I don't see anything wrong:

[Tue Apr 24 16:41:49 2012] [warn] pid file C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/logs/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?

Any performance related readings? –  Khaled Apr 24 '12 at 14:12
What does the error log say ? –  adaptr Apr 24 '12 at 14:18
@Khaled about performance readings, is it something I can look with mod_status? I'm a new with Apache –  username Apr 24 '12 at 14:25
