Apache problem


I'm running RH 8 with apache.

I am now getting the error "httpd dead but pid file exists."

When I then try to restart it:
Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
Starting httpd: [ OK ]

But it really isn't running and doesn't show itself on ps -A.

I've tried restarting using /rc.d/init.d script and /usr/sbin/apachectl

I modified the .conf file, but it shouldn't have done anything then I put it back to normal--so I'm pretty sure this is not the cause.

In my log file I got this:

about 20 lines of this

[Tue Oct 21 10:21:28 2003] [warn] child process 28994 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM
[Tue Oct 21 10:21:28 2003] [warn] child process 28995 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM


And this grouping a few times:

[Tue Oct 21 10:26:28 2003] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Tue Oct 21 10:26:28 2003] [notice] Digest: done
[Tue Oct 21 10:26:29 2003] [warn] pid file /var/run/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?
[Tue Oct 21 10:26:29 2003] [crit] (17)File exists: unable to create scoreboard (name-based shared memory failure)

Any thoughts?

somewhat fixed

After an hour of dealing with this I rebooted for the first time in a few months and that seemed to have "fixed" the problem.

If anyone has any ideas about what could have been wrong I would love to hear them.

it came back

This is more as a reference for other people, but it came back.

I think I figured out how to fix it. I went into my httpd.conf file and commented out the scoreboard line.

"ScoreBoardFile "/var/run/httpd.scoreboard" "

Seems to be working well--hope that takes care of it.
