LMS 3.1: apache service error

Answered Question
Jun 2nd, 2010


After reboot Customer has this messages on windows event viewer:

Date:  5/28/2010
Time:  10:13:47

User:  N/A
Computer: FRCF1NTW10

The Apache service named; C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\MDC\Apache\Apache.exe; reported the following error:

>>>; [Fri May 28 10:13:47 2010] [warn] pid file c:/program files/cscopx/mdc/apache/logs/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?; <<<

before the error.log file could be opened.

; More information may be available in the error.log file.;

You will find pdshow where apache is ok, file pdshow_280510_apache_ok.txt, in the morning LMS was ok except UT.

On monday, we could not connect to LMS we saw that apache.exe crashed on 28 May in the afternoon, file pdshow_280510_apache_bad.txt

We reboot lms server, then LMS is ok, UT too.

I saw conversation related to CSCsg29627 bug, Do you think that we have the same issue ?

We have an other message type in the event viewer :

Date:  5/18/2010
Time:  7:42:59 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: FRCF1NTW10
Apache.exe child process caused an exception and reported error
More information may be available in the error.log file.
Apache.exe child process will be restarted !      .

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

and in error.log:

[Tue May 18 07:42:59 2010] [error] Apache.exe caused a EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in module ApacheCore.dll at 001B:6FFA8161, ap_ctx_get()+17 byte(s)

I saw a conversation https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/663665#663665 that explains this message is not important. Is it ?

Many thanks, Elisabeth

I have this problem too.

Not a Cisco bug, but I referred to the problem in the thread you mentioned in your initial post.

3.x is too generic.  Exactly what version of LMS do you have?  If less than 3.2, then you are most likely seeing the bug I mentioned in the other CSC thread.  This is fixed in LMS 3.2 as we are now using Apache 2.2.

Then you will need to upgrade to 3.2 to get around this.  Typically, this bug is non-operationally impacting.  In certain rare cases it does prevent access to LMS.  The fix was only really possible when we moved to the more recent Apache version.

Bug CSCsg29627 seems to be fix on 3.1.

Do you know if there is an other bug relate to this issue which is fix on 3.2 ?

Many thanks, Elisabeth
