Subject RE: [users@httpd] Service Specific error 1 (WIN NT)
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2003 19:10:00 GMT
Thanks Jeff,
I did try that and there was no result. Finally I decided that the conf file
must be the problem and used the default just to test and - Hey Presto - it
worked. Going over my conf file in detail I could find nothing wrong.
Eventually I changed the access logging back from 'combined' to regular
logging and my problem was solved. Now I have to figure out why the
'combined' logging is no longer working for me.
I would also like to figure out a way for access log to parse out on a
monthly basis but I see that there are a number of posts on access logs.
Appreciate the help.

Suggestion: use the check config tool:

c:\pathto\apache2\bin\Apache.exe -w -t -f c:\pathto\apache2\conf\httpd.conf
-d c:\pathto\apache2

That might help you solving the problem.

Subject: [users@httpd] Service Specific error 1 (WIN NT)


I am running Apache 2.0.39 on a WIN NT4 SP6 machine and all has been well
for some months. This morning I stopped the Apache service to redirect the
access logs by modifying the conf file. I then restarted Apache. It would
not come up and I received the following error message:

"The Apache2 service returned service specific error 1" 

I returned the conf file back to its previous condition but it didn't help.
I tried to repair the installation with the install program - didn't work. I
checked the logs - nothing useful. I un-installed Apache and reinstalled it
- no change.

Has anyone encountered this problem before and can you advise. My next step
is to restore the server from a recent backup.
