When I try to launch httpd, I do not receive any error messages (but the failed kill),
a pid is written into conf/httpd.pid (which I supose means that the httpd process has been
but a ps gives no such process...

So I'd like to know if there are known problems with cc compiler ( I had warnings like :
cc: "util_md5.c", line 117: warning 604: Pointers are not assignment-compatible.
cc: "util_md5.c", line 117: warning 563: Argument #1 is not the correct type.
but I don't think it is very important... )

Can you tell me what are the processes that httpd launches and which may kill the main process
May user rights of conf files or executables provokes such errors (httpd user is nobody:nogroup,

apache has been installed under root:other) ?

Thanks in advance for your answer,
