Subject Re: [users@httpd] Error 500 "[error] [client 127.0.0.1] couldn't spawn child process"

usually its something to do with your Memory being very low if you running
too many programs while testing your scripts then kill some & I do not
recommend running apache on windows 98. well really even running perl
script's can slow your computer down as well as creating a huge risk. also
sometimes these errors can be caused by not having the right libs etc needed
to execute the script.

I hope this helps.
