Bug#500558: Apache fails to start..
I can reproduce this behavior "out of" boot on Squeeze..
The error occurs when you have one interface that only have IPv6
address ( this happen if you call dhclient on some interface that has
no link ) and have one directive listen with IPv4 address ( even if
is the loopback address) on the ports.conf.
Simple way to reproduce (with apache stoped):
1) Edit the ports.conf with: listen 127.0.0.1:80
2) Remove the network cable and execute: dhclient
3) Kill the dhclient with CTRL+C
4) Execute "ifconfig" to confirm that your iface now have a IPv6 address
5) Try to start apache2
I will try to debug why apache turn in error even if have my loopback
has IPv4 address.
