I seem to have stumbled on the answer. For whatever reason it didn't like the _default_:9443
in my ssl.conf. I changed that to *:9443 and the server started without problems. I don't
understand why my the test box works with _default_:9443. If someone wants to clue me in,
I'd appreciate it.

Subject: [users@httpd] apachectl startssl returns "assertion 'rv == APR_SUCCESS" failed'

Hello everyone,



This is probably better directed to the mod_ssl folks but their majordomo is using SORBS and
SORBS is blocking Yahoo mail accounts.



I have Apache 2.0.59 binaries (and required supporting components) from sunfreeware installed
on two Solaris 9 9/04 servers. The two systems are identical in most respects. They differ
in terms of patch levels.
On both servers I created self signed certificates for testing purposes. I have only made
the bare minimum necessary edits to httpd.conf, and no edits at all to ssl.conf (Apache 2.0.59
from sunfreeware breaks SSL configuration off into a separate file).

Apache starts just fine on the one server, and chokes on the other server.

Good guy:

# ../ssl/bin/openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out conf/ssl.crt/server.crt -keyout conf/ssl.key/server.key
.
.
.
# ../bin/apachectl startssl
# ps -ef | grep [a]pache2
  nobody 12433 12428  0 01:04:25 ?        0:00 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
  nobody 12434 12428  0 01:04:25 ?        0:00 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
  nobody 12432 12428  0 01:04:25 ?        0:00 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
  nobody 12431 12428  0 01:04:25 ?        0:00 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
  nobody 12435 12428  0 01:04:25 ?        0:00 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
    root 12428     1  1 01:04:24 ?        0:01 /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
#


Bad guy:

# ../ssl/bin/openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out conf/ssl.crt/server.crt -keyout conf/ssl.key/server.key
.

.

.

# ../bin/apachectl startssl
[Fri Mar 30 01:05:29 2007] [crit] [Fri Mar 30 01:05:29 2007] file vhost.c, line 190, assertion
"rv == APR_SUCCESS" failed
Abort - core dumped
#


I used the same sunfreeware packages to install Apache, OpenSSL, zlib, libgcc etc.

Any ideas? This is meant to become my new production web server, replacing an older IBM HTTPD
2.0.47.1, but the machine that is failing is my prod box. It works on the dev/test box.

Thanks,
Mark
