Subject [users@httpd] 64-bit problem
Date Wed, 11 May 2005 13:41:04 GMT

I am porting the apache 2.0.53 to Windows 2003 Server (64-bit). From the
study of the code, I found that at some places, care is not taken while
writing the portable code.

like in file server\mpm\winnt\child.c (line 887):

child_handles = (HANDLE) apr_pcalloc(pchild, ap_threads_per_child *

should be changed to:

child_handles = (HANDLE) apr_pcalloc(pchild, ap_threads_per_child *

so that it works fine both on 32-bit and 64-bit. Though the size of int and
HANDLE are same on 32-bit, while allocating memory, care should always be
taken with sizeof().
