Apache Access Permission Denied > Shared Memory Violation

Post by jaskooner dot s at virgin dot ne » Wed, 11 Jun 2003 21:30:48



Hello everyone.

My Apaches server stopped working and is cuurently denying permission to
all web browsers from all client machines.

My error_log has thrown this up:

[Tue Jun 10 10:41:33 2003] [notice] Apache/2.0.40 (Red Hat Linux)
configured -- resuming normal operations
[Tue Jun 10 12:27:55 2003] [warn] child process 784 still did not exit,
sending a SIGTERM
[Tue Jun 10 12:28:19 2003] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest
authentication ...
[Tue Jun 10 12:28:19 2003] [notice] Digest: done
[Tue Jun 10 12:28:20 2003] [crit] (17)File exists: unable to create
scoreboard (name-based shared memory failure)

This is all I can find to explain what is happening. Can anyone help?

Thanking you all in advance.

your apache seems to have gone down the hard way, right?

if you have a ScoreBoardFile directive in your your httpd.conf, you
might try to comment it out (i cannot imagine file-based-shmem is
really necessary on redhat linux) or try to delete whatever is there
(with apache off, of course) before trying to start your apache.

but if that keeps happening, you might want to look into upgrading as
2.0.40 is old and there's been some security related issues since
then, among others some denial-of-service thingies lately...

Thnaks Joachim,

I commented out the said portion of the config file and I can now
access my web server.

But only from with my LAN! When I try from the web I get a message
that

"The page has no data".

Does anyone no what this means? I've got a windows web server at
another site working ok with similar get up.

Can nayone help?
