Subject [users@httpd] Apache won't start due to "proxy mutex" error?
Date Sun, 24 Apr 2016 03:03:52 GMT
I'm trying to set up Apache 2.4.20 on Cygwin.  I tried asking about
this on the Cygwin mailing list, but no one seems to know about it, so
I thought I would try here.

I'm using the standard Cygwin package, and I'm setting it up as a
Windows service.  It installs fine as a service (in terms of getting
it to show up in the services list), but here's what happens when I
try to start it:

$ cygrunsrv -S httpd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus:  Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.

$ cat /var/log/httpd/error_log
[Sat Apr 23 22:57:41.691316 2016] [core:emerg] [pid 9304] (88)Function
not implemented: AH00023: Couldn't create the proxy mutex
[Sat Apr 23 22:57:41.691937 2016] [proxy:crit] [pid 9304] (88)Function
not implemented: AH02478: failed to create proxy mutex
AH00016: Configuration Failed

I don't know exactly what "proxy mutex" means.  I don't have any proxy
modules being loaded in my config (at least not that I'm aware of).  I
guess it's having a problem creating a file somewhere?

Thanks for any help,
