Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache.exe error
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2002 17:47:48 GMT

I had a similar problem for which I posted a bug on the Apache bugzilla.
Following are the details:

You can do the following:
1) Run the drwtsn32.exe application and turn off visual notification so that
you need not click on the "OK" button while your remote customers are left
clueless as to why the system is not responding.

2) As the bottom bugzilla report says, upgrade to the latest version of
Apache (2.0.43) and OpenSSL (0.9.6g). And hopefully that should resolve the
problem. Atleast it did for me - I mean I havent seen that error pop up till

Check your drwtsn32.log file under the "Documents and Settings" folder in
your system and check if your error log matches with that shown below.

Let me know if this helps!

  All you needed to share was this segment...

function: ap_ctx_get
        6ff8f930 8b442404         mov     eax,[esp+0x4]          
        6ff8f934 53               push    ebx
        6ff8f935 55               push    ebp
        6ff8f936 56               push    esi
        6ff8f937 57               push    edi
FAULT ->6ff8f938 8b7804           mov     edi,[eax+0x4]          

which identifies the EAPI patch as the source of the segv.  Suggest
(STRONGLY) that you update to 1.3.27 with the latest OpenSSL (g?) and mod
ssl, this is possibly exploit related.

But it sure has nothing to do with the Apache HTTP Server project.
