Subject RE: [users@httpd] $HTTPD -k $ARGV
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2006 07:09:55 GMT
T'was Friday afternoon here too... Now it's Monday morning :->

I suggest that the original poster tries to execute the shell script with the -x switch as
argument to confirm that httpd is indeed launched before crashing:

sh -x apachectl start

However, since Apache actually starts when removing the two lines, I think it's pretty clear
that the error message is issued by the vl_module.

If the problem persists, and it turns out that the module is the cause, the original poster
should contact the appropriate forum, or the authors, for help...

Mit freundliche Grüsse (?)

You're probably right... it's Friday afternoon here :-)

It *is* a bit wierd that that module would spit out the line from the shell script that started
the process that loaded it though, isn't it? (Assuming I read the OP correctly...)
