CERN HTTPD 3.0 -- Can't create logs and pid file

CERN HTTPD 3.0 -- Can't create logs and pid file

Post by Rodney Win » Tue, 16 Apr 1996 04:00:00

I'm trying to run CERN HTTPD 3.0 server as ONLY a proxy server under HP-UX
9.  It build OK, but when I try to start it in verbose mode, it complains
that it can't create the PID and log files.

I specify a valid username in the configuration file, that user owns the
log directory, and I am able to write to the log directory as the user
under which the server runs, but I can't make the server write there.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Please send via E-mail, if

1. CERN ftp server can't open PASV for CERN httpd 3.0


    Could you help me ?
  I am running CERN proxy httpd 3.0 libwww 2.17 on IRIX 4.0.5.
  When I attempt to retrive files from cern ftp
  using Mosaic   I get the message "530 Can't open passive connection".
  But from other ftp servers, for example I don't
  get such a message and everything is OK. May be I have configured my
  httpd.conf not correctly ? Or something else ?
