any one can tell me what is wrong on my nginx 1.2.5 version compied with
ipv6 suppot ? I try to start nginx on both ipv4 and ipv6. I read on internet
if I put in my config file: listen [::]:80; is enought and nginx will bind
on both ipv4 and ipv6 interfaces or even if I compile nginx with ipv6
support is enought and on listen 80; will bind to ip4 and ip6, but i receive
follow error:
[emerg] 15728#0: bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use

Any hints how to start nginx on both intefaces ?
