Error 10061 : Connection refused

alensaqe asked:

The server (CentOS 5) was working fine Until someone deleted some file under the /usr.

Now it shows this error :

Error Code 10061: Connection refused Background: When the gateway or proxy server contacted the upstream (Web) server, the connection was refused. This usually results from trying to connect to a service that is inactive on the upstream server.

What could the possible causes be?

My answer:


Connection refused means that the web server isn’t running. So you go and start it. If you find it doesn’t start because it doesn’t exist anymore, then you know what got deleted.
