That's a bit rich - "gcache" is the global cache server which is an
integral part of apache-SSL. It's hardly a core apache module...

Anyway, as to your problem, obviously something has run into a file
permissions problem when reading, writing or executing. I don't know
what files or devices gcache uses but I would check things like:

- did you create any files or directories as root that later need to be
written to by the apache User?
- are all executables executable?
- what happens if you try to start apache as root?
- is there a man page for gcache in the distro - what does it say?

Rgds,

Owen Boyle.
