Subject [users@httpd] error unless Apache started by root user
Date Thu, 13 Feb 2003 06:59:47 GMT
I'm running Red Hat 7.2, php-4.2.3, expat-1.95.4.

When I start Apache as root, it starts fine.

But, my startups scripts fail, as does starting apache from a non root user,
with the following error:

"bin/httpd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory"

I can find a sys link ( and the file it links to in
/usr/local/lib.  The permissions seem to be fine on the file, so maybe it's
a question of it being in the user paths.

Any help appreciated.
