apache hangs when starting -> Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...


Hi,
I have this problem that apache hangs when I start it from command line with fx.:
service httpd start
The message in error_log is like this for a coupple of starts:
[Tue Aug 17 08:33:44 2004] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Tue Aug 17 08:38:46 2004] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Tue Aug 17 08:43:58 2004] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...

I have tried waiting up to 24 minutes without luck.

If I restart the hole system (shutdown -r) the apache starts with no problem - but I cannot live with that in the long run.

I am running Apache 2.0.50 on Fedora Core 1.
Hardware: pentium 4, 2.8 Ghz, 1 GB RAM.

1) Any suggestions how to solve the problem?

2) What module is behind this digest authentication ?
[edit]: ok I guess it must be mod_auth_digest.c

Thanks Jan

I think this answers it pretty well.

You'll have to fix the link as this forum won't allow me to post URLs.

Hi Thank you very much for answering. Interesting to see a solution (though I do not have the problem anymore; got new servers today :-) ).

FYI, for anybody who has this problem in the future, with Windows/Linux configurations check out Likewise 2.0, there's Apache management tools which make it super easy to configure.

Hi guys,

I am seeing the a lot of the following log entries but I don't think I'm encountering the problem of machine hanging. Though I don't know what the entries mean. Can someone please explain.
