Subject RE: [users@httpd] Problem with Apache 2.0.59
Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 15:03:21 GMT
Hello Sander,

Thank you very much for your reply.
Both ServerRoot and LockFile has 777 permissions.
Still I am facing the problem.

Do we need to change the configuration file ..

One more thing .. Its working on the same machine where it is build but
we copied the binaries to someother machine .. There its giving this
problem. Do we need to copy any other files/directories other than httpd
directory ( prefix directory).

Please help me ..

Did you start Apache as  a non-root user? What value have your
ServerRoot and LockFile directives?

The user that starts Apache (if not root) needs write access to the
directory where the PID file, the logs and the accept lock file are.
