Symptoms

 

Apache won't start - error_log shows the following error message:

Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 443/80

Resolution

 

The problem might be:


1.  /etc/denied_ports has been edited or someone changed it's ownership to the VDS owner instead of root:root.


2. The IP of the VDS is down on the server.


to check this please use the following steps:


a. cat  [vds_base]/bin/vds_ip to see the VDS's IP


b. ifconfig | grep [vds_ip]


c. If you get nothing it means that the IP is down.


d. raise the IP by using the following command:  ifconfig ethx:x [IP] netmask [netmask] up
