Subject [users@httpd] apache error question
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2005 14:34:28 GMT

I have apache 2.0.49 on a windows server (with mod_ssl) and CF MX 6.1. 
 In my error log I see this occurring frequently:

[Wed Aug 24 16:03:25 2005] [notice] Parent: child process exited with
status 3221226324 -- Restarting.

...note I have maxrequestsperchild set to 0 which I think technicallly
means the child process shouldn't exit unless something goes wrong or
apache is stopped or restarted.

Occassionally (once or twice a week so far), apache will hang on this
server and if I try to restart apache it doesn't work, and eventually I
have to bounce the server.  Then it will run fine for a while, but
eventually it siezes up again.  (Note this is a very low traffic server,
so that probably explains why this doesn't happen more often?)

When I googled this error and other log entries, I found several
things, few of which were helpful.  I have added Win32DisalbeAcceptEx to
the apache config. on advice noted in several articles, but that doesn't
seemed to have helped.  I also saw an article that mentioned using
EnableSendfile off and EnableMMap off but I'm doubtful that those will

I also saw some info. that seemed to relate this issue back to the use
of non-threadsafe code.  From what I can tell, we currently aren't
running anything that is not threadsafe on the server.

I could really use some advice as to what I should look for (other log
entries?) or test to help identify what's causing this problem.  Is this
a known issue w/a standard fix? (I hope so? hehe), or if not what should
my next step(s) be to solve this?

Thanks in Advance,
