Hello, I have successfully installed and configured Apache httpd. However, when I run netstat -ln -4, I don’t see any listening ports 80 and 443. Interestingly, I am still able to reach my webserver. What could be the cause of this? I am running AlmaLinux 8.5. Thanks in advance for any insight provided.
The ‘netstat’ is actually an old tool. “Newer” tool is ‘ss’:
sudo ss -tulpn
Not that it matters in your case. What do you get with:
sudo systemctl status httpd.service
ss -plnt or
netstat -plnt, as unless you’ve specifically configured it for v4 only (e.g. Listen 192.168.1.2:80) it’ll bind to ipv6 first as part of the wildcard, it’ll listen on ipv4 too, but won’t show as v4 only which is what you’re querying.
