Subject WWW Form Bug Report: ""coul dn't spawn child process" err all cgi's" on Ultrix (fwd)
Date Sun, 05 Jan 1997 19:29:00 GMT

acked.

I assumed the "couldn't spawn" is due to a lack of processes or
file descriptors and needs kernel reconfiguration.

The rest of the message relates to compiling 1.2b4 under Ultrix. Something
for Jim to read.

Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: ""coul dn't spawn child process" err all cgi's" on Ultrix

Submitter: dll@zbeng.com
Operating system: Ultrix, version: 4.3
Version of Apache Used: 1.2b4
Extra Modules used: mod_ header,info,rewrite,usertrack,status(works),auth_anon,auth_dbm
URL exhibiting problem: 

Symptoms:
--
Error log show "couldn't spawn..." when attempt to access any cgi's.  
Testing 1.2b4 server config'd for port 81 with uniqe config&log files.

Also running (and working) on same machine: 1.1.1 server on port 80, 
apache_1.3ssl server on port 443.
scoreboard files were verified unique (caused similar err on initial https tests).

Some compile warnings during build:

(This one also occured for 1.1.1 and ssl builds).


Note that -Iregex had to be added to INCLUDES1 (regex.h)
Also (unrelated?) had to change #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/sh5 in helpers/PringPath for Configure
(sh didn't know [ -x ... ])
