OpenSuSE Tumbleweed: When apache breaks with “Invalid argument: AH00069: make_sock: for address [::]:443”

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/28

I had this strange break down of Apache 2 after updating to the most recent openSuSE Tumbleweed in the /var/log/apache2/error_log:

[Wed Jun 28 10:04:19.955991 2017] [ssl:info] [pid 27786] AH01887: Init: Initializing (virtual) servers for SSL
[Wed Jun 28 10:04:19.962449 2017] [ssl:info] [pid 27786] AH01876: mod_ssl/2.4.26 compiled against Server: Apache/2.4.26, Library: OpenSSL/1.0.2k
AH00558: httpd-prefork: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1. Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message
[Wed Jun 28 10:04:20.029863 2017] [core:crit] [pid 27786] (22)Invalid argument: AH00069: make_sock: for address [::]:443, apr_socket_opt_set: (IPV6_V6ONLY)
(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443
(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443
[Wed Jun 28 10:04:20.029935 2017] [mpm_prefork:alert] [pid 27786] no listening sockets available, shutting down

This didn’t give any results for processes having port 443 open:

# /usr/bin/netstat --verbose --all --numeric | grep 443

The commands below didn’t help much either.

So I started digging in port 443 binding:

The Cryptowars, twenty years ago – The Isoblog.

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/27

Interesting read with lots of references: [WayBackThe Cryptowars, twenty years ago – The Isoblog.

My TL;DR:

  • the current cryptowar is very similar to 20 years ago
  • back then it was won by the people
  • current outcome is unclear (but the rules of math cannot be changed)
  • Laws/Rules/Postulates:
    • John Gilmore
      • »The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.«
    • Shoshana Zuboff
      • »Everything that can be automated will be automated.«
      • »Everything that can be informated will be informated.«
      • »Every digital application that can be used for surveillance and control will be used for surveillance and control.«
  • Kristian:
    • »20 years later, the Cryptowar is still a thing. It will never be over.«

For – Loop through a range of numbers | Windows CMD | SS64.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/27

Since I always forget:

for /l %1 in (1,2,200) do echo %1 >> text-%1.txt

This creates files with incremental filenames like this:

text-1.txt
text-3.txt
...
text-199.txt
