<-- this was me again! *gg*

> hi thanks for your quick help

> No valid listen or port lines were found in the configuration file.
> httpGetHostByName("marge6.sylvia.test") failed - zu diesem namen gehört keine adresse (translation by me: no name belongs to this address)
> bad listen address marge6.sylvia.test
> of course, there is a working AAAA dns record for marge6 which i can ping as well. i didn't have to add ipv6 support manually? (st. like ./configure enable ipv6)?
> what did i configure wrong? is there any other file i have to edit?
