Description of problem:
Below is the full error message from the /var/log/httpd/error_log file:
[Mon Feb 24 15:37:32 2003] [error] (38)Function not implemented: Cannot create
SSLMutex file `/etc/httpd/logs/ssl_mutex.20656'
This happens when I attempt to start apache after being configuring with the
tool listed in System Settings -> Server Settings -> HTTP Server.
Since the web server is being executed with user 'apache' permissions I changed
the ownership of /var/log/httpd to 'apache' with no change in result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat version Phoebe
2. Run the HTTP Server to configure your web server
3. Try to start it via /etc/init.d/httpd start
Actual Results: The above error message was produce in the error log file. The
startup script just reports "FAILED". Trying to start httpd by calling manually
gets you the command abruptly failing with no error messages reported to
Expected Results: Web server started with the startup script reporting "OK"
Note: This is for version of httpd in the RedHat Linux (Phoebe) release.
Fixed. Latest httpd from rawhide (2.0.40-20) fixes the problem. Rebuild from
source RPM and upgraded.
