    Hi,
    I am new to this forum. I bought Mac book pro few months back. I am working on a project that involves Jboss. Whenever I start Apache and type "http://localhost/" on the browser, the result is "It works!".
    I tried to configure, still the same issue. I checked and none of the other services is listening to the same port:80. I have posted the complete content of httpd.conf file in the"/etc/apache2".(I apologize for the lengthy post )


    Code:
    #
    # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.
    # In particular, see
    # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
    # for a discussion of each configuration directive.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "/private/var/log/apache2/foo_log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "/usr" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "/usr//private/var/log/apache2/foo_log".
    
    #
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    #
    # Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
    # ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive
    # at a local disk.  If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
    # httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
    #
    ServerRoot "/usr"
    
    #
    # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
    # ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
    # directive.
    #
    # Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
    # prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
    #
    #Listen 12.34.56.78:80
    #Listen 80

    # To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
    # have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the

    If you see "It works!" in your browser then Apache is running. (You can confirm by looking for processes named httpd in Activity Monitor.)

    What are you expecting to see? Are you entering the URL you want? How did you install Apache2, or are you using the one that comes with OS X?

    Thanks for the reply.

    When I enter http://localhost on the Safari browser, the result is "It works!". When I hit refresh, this is the result - "Safari can’t open the page “http://localhost/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “localhost”."
    I checked the activity manager and there are no httpd process running.
    I am using the apache that comes with OSx.

    I have to start the Jboss AS. when i run it in the terminal, it starts. But the same error "Safari can’t open the page “http://localhost/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “localhost”." in the browser(I tried using the port localhost:8090).

    Do I have an alternative. Can I reinstall Apache or should I configure the one that is already there.

    I would try looking at the files that are getting included from the httpd.conf file you included. One of these files may have something related to the error message you are seeing.

    Code:
    Include /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
    There's a number of includes so be sure to check them all out, especially looking for the text "/usr/docs/dummy-host.example.com" that appears as part of the error.

    Have you enabled Web Sharing in the Sharing Preference Pane? This would be the standard way to start httpd in OS X.

    I suppose you could also do

    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/apachectl start
    I don't see any need to reinstall apache2, or to reconfigure it (at least until you get it to start).

    Hi,
    I moved from Jboss 5.1.0GA to Jboss 4.2.3.GA as there was an error whenever I created a Topic.

    There is no Administration Console in Jboss 4.2.3.GA. HOw do I create a Topic in Jboss 4.2.3.GA?

    Thanks in advance.

    No idea about Jboss. I think you should start a new thread.
