Unanswered: Application Server Could not bind to port 80
Installed AS on CentOS, everything works except when I try to have apache listen on port 80, I get [Wed Nov 29 16:47:34 2006] [crit] (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to port 80 .... Checked for other process that might have a hold of 80, but there is none. I can start apache as root from the os , but not as the oracle user. Disabled SELinux, but still nothing. Followed the install instructions but am missing something. Any ideas?
Well, I can as any user create a socket file and have it listen on anything. I believe his problem relies on file permissions. How about (for this sake) if you set your Oracle user belong to your system group (or the group root belongs to) ?
There should be a .apachectl file in the Apache/Apache/bin directory of the AS installation. In order to bind to port 80 you need to do this:
1) You need to set the owner to root and the group to nobody for the .apachectl file.
2) Set the file permission to -rwsr-s---.
3) Modify the httpd.conf file and set user to oracle and group to nobody.
4) Restart the http daemon and it should bind to port 80.
