Subject RE: Starting apache and httpd.conf problem
Date Fri, 31 May 2002 14:41:29 GMT

Thank your for the advice, I have just tried exactly what you had mentioned
and I am still getting the same error.

I'm starting to wonder if it is anything to do with Solaris??? Also do I
need to make any changes to my PATH or CLASSPATH according to where the file exists?

This is very puzzling, and since the error message contains "sparc" I am
guessing it may be something to do with Sparc Solaris.

Astonshingly, I have been doing the very same thing this week...

I think you have missed compiling the Apache Portable Runtime library. What
I did was:

- go to and get the latest apr snapshot (it seems they do not
have a "release" system)
- unpack it in /tmp, then build it using:

	Note that you need libtool to use buildconf - you can get this from

- now when you compile webapp, you should say:

	./configure --with-apxs --with-apr=/tmp/apr

	and it will pick up the libraries when building. As far as I
understand, the APR libs are compiled into so you don't need to
keep APR..
