Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2 initgroups alert, Max OS X, abnormal exit in error log
Date Mon, 26 Oct 2009 12:12:44 GMT

Hello.
I am having the same problem as you. It happens only after last upgrade to
httpd (I use macports). It was working without any problems but now I get
this initgroups warning followed by a Fatal error. And Apache exists.
I use httpd 2.2.14 with mod_ssl and mod_jk (linked to jBoss)

I know I can't help you with the solllution but maybe there is some test I
can do... or maybe you alreado found the sollution :-)
