Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.0 with SSL on AIX 5.3
Date Tue, 28 Mar 2006 18:44:06 GMT
I have been unable to get Apache 2.2.0 with SSL running on AIX 5.3. This is from "httpd -V"...

Server version: Apache/2.2.0
Server built:   Mar 28 2006 11:28:41
Server's Module Magic Number: 20051115:0
Architecture:   32-bit
Server MPM:     Prefork
   threaded:     no
     forked:     yes (variable process count)
Server compiled with....
  -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/prefork"
  -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
  -D HTTPD_ROOT="/usr/local/apache2"
  -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/local/apache2/bin/suexec"
  -D DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD="logs/apache_runtime_status"
  -D DEFAULT_LOCKFILE="logs/accept.lock"
  -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
  -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="conf/mime.types"
  -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

...I compiled with...

env CC=gcc CCC=g++ ./configure --enable-mods-shared=most --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl



gmake install build and install. When I run "apachectl start" with debug logging I get...

...which looks okay, but Apache seems to crash and never starts listening. I only get the
following in the logs directory...

access_log       error_log        ssl_request_log

...the only modifications I made to the configuration files is to change the listening port
to 8080, because I have an 
older Apache listening on 80, and uncommenting the line that imports the SSL configuration
file in the extras directory. 
Also, I created a key and self-signed certificate with OpenSSL before running.

Any ideas why Apache is crashing silently? Is there another way to try to determine the cause
of the crash?
