  Build Your Own Apache Server with mod_perl

I followed all the steps(including the bit about apreq in the earlier post), and everything seemed to build fine. Apache starts ok and if I run top I can see it's running.


But when I point my browser at localhost or 127.0.0.1, I get a "Connection refused..." message. Any hints as to where to look for problems?

    For some reason the default http.conf is set to listen on port 8080 so try http://127.0.0.1:8080.

    If you change the config to use port 80 you'll have to start apache as root. But be careful as this will conflict with the default Mac OS X apache install.

    Good luck.

      That's exactly what I needed. Guess it's time I finally dove into the config files. I must say that FileMerge (comes with the Dev Tools) makes it easy to look at the two config files side by side and see the differences.

      Thanks again!
