Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "SSLSessionCache" by JoeWein
Date Tue, 13 Jul 2010 10:20:47 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "SSLSessionCache" page has been changed by JoeWein.
The comment on this change is: description and workaround for common problem with SSLSessionCache
on 64-bit Windows.


+ === Problems on 64-bit Microsoft Windows ===
+ The following error may be encountered in the error.log file on a 64-bit version of Windows
with the 32-bit version of Apache:
+ {{{
+ Syntax error on line 62 of C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:
+ SSLSessionCache: Invalid argument: size has to be >= 8192 bytes
+ }}}
+ The offending line will be something like this:
+ {{{
+ SSLSessionCache "shmcb:C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/logs/ssl_scache(512000)"
+ }}}
+ Due to a parser error the "(x86)" in the path is mistakenly found when looking for the bracketed
cache size parameter at the end. A work-around is to create a link to the Apache folder somewhere
else and then replace the Apache folder of the above path with the path of that link. For
example, create a link to
+  C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation
+ in your user folder as:
+  c:\Users\myusername\Apache
+ and then use that path in the config file:
+ {{{
+ SSLSessionCache "shmcb:c:/Users/myusername/Apache/Apache2.2/logs/ssl_scache(512000)"
+ }}}
