Hi, guys; I am just starting to learn how to use servlets. I tried to install Apache web server on my computer (wind98) but I could not get it working for me. After installation, I tried to start the server and in dos console it showed the message: Apache running...... When I tried to access http://localhost:8080 via internet explorer, i got the error message: cannot access localhost:8080 offline. What was wrong? anybody out there using Apache server, please help!
I had a simular problem a month ago... Is your machine connected to a network... If it is... somewhere on your network localhost my already be defined. I have installed apache 1/2 dozon times already... It should not take more that 30 minutes... P.S. I develop database software.. and have learned how to use web servers by the school of hard knocks.. good Luck
