Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459192
http won't start because mod_fcgid can't create share memory
Last modified: 2008-08-15 16:44:25 EDT
Description of problem:
apache server won't start due to error displayed in
[emerg] (17)File exists: mod_fcgid: Can't create share memory for size %zu byte
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start httpd and see error above in log.
Steps to Reproduce:
I have a work around this problem. I commented out all the
command lines in /etc/httpd/conf.d/fcgid.conf. The apache
server then starts and works as expected.
Thanks for contacting us. This is likely to be a bug in mod_fcgid, but that module is not distributed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux; please contact the upstream developers for further help if you are compiling from source.
Thanks for pointing me to mod_fcgid. Since I used RH EL5 rpms, I just
assumed RH was responsible. The version of mod_fcgid I have is
mod_fcgid-2.2-4.el5 and the httpd rpms are httpd-2.2.3-11.el5_1.3 and
httpd-manual-2.2.3-11.el5_1.3. I'm not sure who to direct this bug to now.
