Apache Bug?

I can't seem to find any evidence on the web of a "bug" with apache that I am experiencing. It appears that apache does not follow symbolic links when the file size is greater than 2 GB. That is, I try to link an ISO file (which resides in, say, /usr/local/some_dir/iso_file) to /var/www/html/some_directory/symlink_to_iso however all other symlinks appear, except those in which the filesize is greater than 2GB. In other words, they are all visibly there in the shell, but when you surf to the apache page to view it:
http://somehost/some_directory/ you see all symlinks but the ones that are big (2+ gb). The big ones don't even appear. Try it, and see for yourself!

I know plenty of other programs (like tar) have filesize limitations or issues with files over 2GB, but I haven't been able to find anyone saying that apache has this problem. I have tried this on FC6,7,and 8 with the latest version of httpd for each, and the results are the same. Do you have any insight as to why this is, and why no one seems to talk about this phenomenon on the web? Or am I just going slowly insane?

BTW, permissions/ownership aren't the issue. The issue is definitely with the filesize. There are not reports of this in the logs (everything seems fine to apache).

Do you have any idea why that is???

Can't connect to port 80 - VertrigoServ/Apache

Hi, everyone;

After I installed pws(iis) on windows (local), now I can't connect my VertrigoServ/Apache to port 80.
I get an error, asking me to disable whatever is using port 80.

I've change the http conf to listen on 80.

I uninstalled the pws, should I reinstall Vertrigo, or do what?

mySQL is on port 3306 - it works.

thanks, in advance

What are the advantages of Lighttpd over Apache

Apache has the lions share of the market, but I still keep hearing about Lighttpd - the fact that Wikipedia is run off it and how its a better web server. What, specifically, is better about Lighttpd, and are there certain situations/scenarios where Lighttpd is better than Apache?

Beginner Apache Installation Issue...

I've gone through the Apache installation a couple of times now and just can't get the darn thing to display the "It works!" message when I hit the localhost in my browser. Can't seem to find any simple beginner troubleshooting guide either - everything out there assumes that you've successfully installed Apache and focuses on post-install configuration.

As someone who is getting his hands dirty with the LAMP stack for the first time - I was wondering if there are any sites, articles that can assist me?

Remember, I'm a FIRST TIME user looking for step-by-step instructions... :(

Making sure apache is up and running

Am curious to know how you monitor whether your apache server is running. Am looking for thoughts here, and perhaps some examples of what has worked and what has not. Should I ping the server? Should I request an html file? Should I check the httpd process? Should I stat the log file? Any best practices here?
