Synopsis: apache doesnt start and outputs some strange memory problems

The failing routines (apc_shmcreate, apc_sem_create) aren't
part of base apache.  Could they be in PHP or mod_ssl?Regardless, it is a configuration problem.

shmget() is failing because the apache module (whatever it is) wants a bigger shared memory
segment (33 million bytes) than your Solaris system is configured to allow.

Look at the Solaris documentation for the /etc/system variable shmsys:shminfo_shmmax.  That
will need to be
tuned to allow a larger shared memory segment.

semget() is failing because the system is out of semaphores.  Look at the documentation of
semsys:seminfo_semmni and semsys:seminfo_semmns.

Another tack...  maybe the module has choices on how it gets shared memory or semaphores and
you can tell it to use a different mechanism?

There may be documentation for PHP or mod_ssl (or whatever) which tells how to deal with these

Thanks for using Apache.
