MySQL and Apache continued:
I have made progress and think I have been able to create a basic
database and get the web server running.
To clarify, I am installing and setting up a client/server configuration
on my HomePC (localhost).
And to not leave out any details about "messing around with apache's
configuration", I will add to the story for those who have time to read
it. Others can jump down to paragraph 6).
1) Initial I had Apache2, MySQL, php installed default with YaST2 from
the Suse 9.1Pro media. However, but had not used these applications or
enabled the http server.
2) Later I installed a tar ball for eZ publish bundled with Apache 1.3,
MySQL, PHP and ImageMagic, which was installed in a temporary test
directory according to:
I enabled the http service and added port 8085 with Yast2, but didn't
get the eZ publish bundle to work.
3) Then I removed the eZ publish bundle and removed and reinstalled with
Yast2 the original rpms for MySQL, Apache2, PHP and ImageMagic, to start
try a normal installations of eZ publish "alone" from schratch.
And this is where I started this thread.
I tried several times to test the web server to get it to display the
Apache Installation test page, but
http://localhost would not work. However, adding a port number like the
previous http://localhost:8085 did work.
4) To be sure to start on a clean installation, I have now also removed
/etc/Apache2 configuration folder, disabled the http service with Yast2
and removed and reinstalled the packages another time. Tested with
http://localhost and http://localhost:8080 which didn't work, neither
before I enabled the http server nor after I enabled the http server.
6) At last I happened to try "http://localhost:80" and suddenly
some(thing) (re)setting happened. Mozilla automatically changed this url
automatically to "http://localhost" and displayed the Apace test page.
After this also the latter url did work in Opera and Konqueror. Also the
eZ publish setup wizard in my personal web-folder starts using
Now also the eZ publish setup wizard is started and displayed as it
should, without the previous need to add port number in these
From this experience it may look like the url "http://localhost"
doesn't work at once, not at least when another port number has been
used in the browser previously.
Any idea or suggestion how and where to set "http://localhost" to work
I had some problems to find and verify the right entries in the long
file /etc/services. I just wonder if port setting using the Yast2 http
service tools, also updates both /etc/Apache2/listen.conf and
