NCSA httpd 1.5.2 "document contains no data"

NCSA httpd 1.5.2 "document contains no data"

Post by Karen Etheridg » Thu, 22 Aug 1996 04:00:00

I just upgraded to httpd 1.5.2... Now instead of my previous problems
(sometimes a CGI's sourcecode woudl be spewed as text instead of being
executed), I get a different error..

About 20% of the time, when requesting a document (.html, .cgi, or
anything), a popup dialog appears, saying "Document contains no data".
Usually requesting the document a second time works, but occasionally
three tries are necessary to actually get the document.

Any ideas what is causing this?  It could just be a misconfiguration
with the new version.  I hadn't ever seen it before upgrading.

1. "Document contains no data" from NCSA httpd 1.5a

The task of getting NCSA httpd 1.5 running seems to be a never ending story.

I got past the SIGSEGV-problem by setting the server up running
as user "www", group "users". But this was little comfort, because now Netscape
is telling me that "Document contains no data", no matter what documents I try to

The config files all point to the relevant directories. I start the server as root.
All seems to be fine (I use the same setup that I used for httpd 1.4.1, which was
running without any trouble).

I've been wrestling with this daemon beast now for days. Anybody having had
similar problems? Solutions?
