Additional info:
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.
Comment 2 Philip Goisman 2008-08-15 16:44:25 EDT
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.
Any suggestions?
