Subject What makes the server die with 255?
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2002 23:53:26 GMT
Hi all, 

Built and ran HEAD on Darwin 5.2, and ran the httpd-test perl-framework.
This dies with the following protest:

server has died with status 255 (please examine t/logs/error_log)

The log says:

[batmobile:perl-framework] sctemme$cat t/logs/error_log
[Wed Jan 16 15:44:04 2002] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest
authentication ...
[Wed Jan 16 15:44:04 2002] [notice] Digest: done
[Wed Jan 16 15:44:04 2002] [notice] Apache/2.0.31-dev (Unix) DAV/2
configured -- resuming normal operations
[Wed Jan 16 15:44:04 2002] [info] Server built: Jan 16 2002 15:21:51
[Wed Jan 16 15:44:05 2002] [error] server reached MaxClients setting,
consider raising the MaxClients setting
[batmobile:perl-framework] sctemme$

Now, what could make this server barf this way. Started by itself, with
default config, it runs and serves pages. Could be something in the test
framework code, of course. If I set StartServers and MaxClients to one in
the regular config, it (of course) yells about hitting the limit, but keeps
on truckin'. I've seen this for the last couple of weeks, but this is the
first moment that I have to look at it. Don't know when exactly it started.

Anyone else seen this behaviour?
