Subject [users@httpd] Getting [error] : Cannot allocate shared memory: (17)File exists..
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2003 21:57:46 GMT
We have Apache 2.0.45 server with openSSL/0.9.6i running on secured and 
unsecured ports on HP-UX. Since last week I am getting following error when 
I try to start the Apache web server.

[error] Cannot allocate shared memory: (17)File exists

ps output showed one apache process running. I killed the single apache 
process and then deleted ssl_scache file under logs directory.

Once I do that, I get following error when trying to start Apache,

(226)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

The lsof command on port 443 shows rng process accessing the port. This 
process can not be killed.

At this time rebooting the machine(which is very disruptive to other users) 
is the only way I am able to successfully restart the web server.

Please let me know how to resolve this error.

Any help is very much appreciated.
