  • Nope, tells me it cant find it, everything else starts OK like mysql

  • @Andrew-Doherty It's telling you that it cannot find the /etc/init.d/apache file or /etc/rc.common file? And you can show me the output that says that?

  • upload-1d25791f-b487-4920-b2d6-d24bc4b468a5

  • @Andrew-Doherty Can you try running /etc/init.d/apache start?

  • I get the same error.

  • @Andrew-Doherty Can you try replacing the content of /etc/init.d/apache with the following:

    #!/bin/sh /etc/rc.common
    start() {
        sleep 5
        apachectl start
    restart() {
        apachectl restart
    stop() {
        apachectl stop

  • Hi @Boken-Lin , found the problem! I use notepad++ to produce the file in windows when it saves it notepad uses windows line returns. Switching this to unix in edit - EOL conversion it then started to work as expected. Thanks for your help, I hope this helps others in a similar position.

  • @Andrew-Doherty That's fantastic! Thanks for letting us know the solution :)

  • i facing error while running the phpmyadmin

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class phpseclib\Crypt\Random in /usr/share/htdocs/phpmyadmin/libraries/phpseclib/Crypt/Random.php on line 43

    but if i check the php version and i will get an normal output without error .


    // Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL

    // Show just the module information.
    // phpinfo(8) yields identical results.


  • @chee-sum-kong Hmmm, seems that there might be some bug in the code for phpmyadmin. According to this post, this bug should have been addressed in version of phpmyadmin: Can you check which version you are running? We may need to manually upgrade the package to a newer version.

  • Why can't I install the apache?
    The following message appears :

    root@Omega-****:/# opkg install apache
    Unknown package 'apache'.
    Collected errors:

    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package apache.

  • @dawn-dew
    Uncomment the fifth line of the /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf file.
    Maybe you should uncomment the first and the second lines too because of dependencies.

    #src/gz reboot_core
    #src/gz reboot_base
    #src/gz reboot_onion
    ## src/gz reboot_luci
    src/gz reboot_packages

    opkg update
    opkg find apache
    opkg info apache
    opkg install apache

    Good luck!

  • @György-Farkas
    Thank you very much.)
    Thanks to you, the apache was installed.

    Another problem came up.

    root@Omega-****:~# apachectl start
    (125)Address in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    AH00015: Unable to open logs

  • @dawn-dew
    You have an Omega2(+). Your starting point - this whole thread up to your post, including the tutorial(s) - is related to Omega ie. the previous version. I supposed you know this. So probably this is not an out-of-the-box solution for you.

    opkg info apache has some busybox warning.
    There is a running web server (uhttpd) on Omega2 by default.
    You should inspect the config file(s) extensively.

  • @György-Farkas hi!
    I still can't install the apache on my Omega2+

    Juste extended the memory to a USB, uncommented the 5-th line in distfeeds.conf
    Everything seems to be working, but apache isn't getting installed.

    if I go "opkg install apache" it says "Unknown package 'apache'"
    and if "opgk find apache" it says "Segmentation fault"

    Please help.

  • @Kirill-Metrokhin are you running b160 firmware? that segmentation fault warning was a problem prior to build b160. the apache may be on a different server. if you already use b160 try re-install if not too big an issue.

    That Segmentation fault is an opkg bug - see also here.
    Sorry I don't know why opkg install apache isn't working now. :-(

    Here you are an alternative method:
    Download that package to some directory - for example with wget <package.ipk>
    Within that directory run the command opkg install <package.ipk>
