I see, The host is at, port 80 .. go right ahead :)

I upgraded apache to 1.3.26 because of the security hole in 1.3.24 found
earlier this week, but this does not change the situation. When I request some
unique string, to be able to look the entry up in the webserver logfiles, it
cannot be found in the logfiles.

Your suggestion of the telnet session is what I tried earlier, but didnt
report, this is the result:

amor# telnet 0  80
Connected to 0.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET / HTTP/1.1

Connection closed by foreign host.

The harddisk rattles a little bit for about a second when doing the request,
after that the connection just gets flunked :/

Nothing, as mentioned above :/

amor# apachectl configtest
Warning: DocumentRoot [/net/stuff2/Apps/ebooks] does not exist
Syntax OK

The warning is a result from an NFS server which is temporarily down, but that
has nothing to do with this virtual host, its the documentroot of another

That's my bet too .. Is there any way I can get status information from the
mod-perl input, to see what in hell its doing ? (im am really not a mod-perl
expert ;)
