Apache on an LG Cookie

{lang: 'en-GB'}

[smartads]

After recently buying an LG  KP500 ( The “Cookie”) and spending a day playing round with it (as you do),  I discovered that the phone had an installation of the Apache Webserver, of all things, on it!

The video above shows how to access the “Apache Test Page” page, which seems to indicate that Apache 2.0 is installed, by loading up the browser and typing http://127.0.0.1 into the address bar.

I’d thought I’d post this here as this has to be one of the strangest undocumented features I ever seen on any phone I’ve owned in the past. I’ve tried saving test HTML files locally and accessing them through the server, but with no luck.

Has anyone else found this little Easter egg? What purpose do you think this serves on the phone its self? Please feel free to share your experiences in the comments. In the mean time, I think I’ll have another play about with it and see what I can find.

  1. Sorry for the late reply. Just checked the software version on my Cookie. Mine’s KP500AT_V10e
    It could be that Apache was added to one of the more recent software versions, but I’m not to sure on that.

    Any one else out there got a Cookie with Bedwyr’s or my software versions?
