I am about to trash the whole FBSD 6.2 installation. It is unusually
frustrating. I have installed FBSD before and have used it for some
years. I am not an expert or programmer.
Here are some problems:
I can access apache from my windows machine: "It works"
But I cannot access http://biggie:10000 - message says: try https://...
that does bring up the Webmin page. I know apache listens on port 80,
but why https to get the Webmin page?
I cannot access http or https://biggie:931 (Swat) "Unable to connect"
Is my configuration wrong for samba? What's with the ssl?
I tried to reinstall (unsuccessfully -D NOSSL) apache22 without SSL. How
can I disable the SSL I don't need SSL as I am using FBSD6.2 only on my
On top of this, when I try to stop apache with apachectl stop, apache
stops. But apachectl start gives : "[warn] (2) No such file or
directory: Failed to enable the 'httpready' Accept Filter"
Samba - I can see Samba on the Windows machine, but I cannot connect to
access the FBSD machine - it is set up the same as when it worked on the
previous installation - security is set for share.
I have the impression that all my problems are related to some kind of
security overkill. And, I must say, the instructions that I have found
on the Web for installation and/or configuration are either too
simplistic or too confusing
I am having more than headaches and three full days of installing and
reinstalling and fiddling without results. I have previously installed
6.2 with apache, xorg, samba and cups without much trouble and it all
worked well until my / directory got overloaded - don't know why. So, I
thought I would do a clean reinstall of everything using more space on
the disk. And now, nothing seems to work quite right - java 1.5 is not
istallable - installed fine before with all the sun-java downloads etc.
Samba does not work even with the same configuration that had worked
before... same for cups and apache22 - all on the same computer with
same configuration and using old configuration files as models - all
that had worked before.
Hope someone can help. :)
