Subject [users@httpd] apache 2.4 httpd.conf configuration
Date Tue, 29 Dec 2015 03:23:07 GMT
when I start httpd. It failed with following error
"[Mon Dec 28 16:37:03.900984 2015] [core:crit] [pid 29127:tid 1] AH00136: Server MUST relinquish
startup privileges before accepting connections.  Please ensure mod_unixd or other system
security module is loaded."

I had "--enable-unixd" in my configure file when I compiled httpd.
So I thought when httpd loaded it will have mod_unixd loaded in the binary.
And I am using basic apache 2.4.17 httpd.conf file
it has following lines for httpd user and group

<IfModule unixd_module>
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for
# running httpd, as with most system services.
User daemon
Group daemon


Can someone help me with this error?
