Subject mod_perl2 1.99_14 and httpd 2.0.49 - gmake test fails (cannot start apache)
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2004 13:11:16 GMT
Good day or whatever it is at your location,

1. Problem description

couple  of days ago I have compiled and (to the extent of my competency)
tested  Apache  httpd 2.0.49 on powerpc-aix- platform (IBM RS6000
7009  C10  model).  Now  trying  to compile mod_perl 1.99_14. Everything
seems  to compile and build fine, but when I'm doing 'gmake test', seems
httpd won't start properly:

following is the screen log:
$ t/TEST -verbose compat/apache_util.t modperl/pnotes.t
[warning] setting ulimit to allow core files
ulimit -c unlimited; /usr/local/bin/perl /home/bozy/src/mod_perl-1.99_14/t/TEST -verbose 'compat/apache_util.t'
/usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -d /home/bozy/src/mod_perl-1.99_14/t -f /home/bozy/src/mod_perl-1.99_14/t/conf/httpd.conf
using Apache/2.0.49 (prefork MPM)

waiting 120 seconds for server to start: .............[Fri Jul 23 09:47:36 2004] [info] 28
Apache:: modules loaded
[Fri Jul 23 09:47:36 2004] [info] 5 APR:: modules loaded
[Fri Jul 23 09:47:36 2004] [info] base server + 17 vhosts ready to run tests
waiting 120 seconds for server to start: not ok
[  error] giving up after 121 secs. If you think that your system
is slow or overloaded try again with a longer timeout value.
by setting the environment variable APACHE_TEST_STARTUP_TIMEOUT
to a high value (e.g. 420) and repeat the last command.

[  error] server failed to start! (please examine t/logs/error_log)

I  am sure there is enough time to start httpd, I tried with 400 and 600
seconds delay wait. httpd seems to exit silently. there is enough ulimit
to produce core file. No core file being produced.

t/logs/error_log shows no signs of any serious errors:

END in, pid=7562

2. Used Components and their Configuration:

*** mod_perl version 1.9914

*** using lib/Apache/
*** Makefile.PL options:
  MP_AP_PREFIX   => /usr/local/apache2
  MP_COMPAT_1X   => 1
  MP_LIBNAME     => mod_perl
  MP_USE_DSO     => 1

*** /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd -V
Server version: Apache/2.0.49
Server built:   Jul 15 2004 12:00:32
Server's Module Magic Number: 20020903:7
Architecture:   32-bit
Server compiled with....
 -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/prefork"
 -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
 -D HTTPD_ROOT="/usr/local/apache2"
 -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/local/apache2/bin/suexec"
 -D DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD="logs/apache_runtime_status"
 -D DEFAULT_LOCKFILE="logs/accept.lock"
 -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
 -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="conf/mime.types"
 -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

!!!NOTICE!!!: Apache has PHP 5.0 as a DSO module - maybe this could give
a clue (but NOT loading PHP does not help). PHP and MySQL interface runs
just fine with Apache - tested on several rather simple applications.

I am not a programmer myself, so I did not investigate further, just
tried to find similar cases on the Net, but did not find a close match
