I am using XAMPP for Windows Version 1.5.1. Running Apache 2.2.0, PHP 5.1.1 and MySQL 2.7.0.
I am running Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4 on a Pentium 4 with 3.2Ghz of RAM.
Apache has just recently been shutting down unexpectedly and regularly. There are no warnings and no indications that the service has stopped. The XAMPP control panel indicates that the service is "Running" but it actually is not.
Looking at the Apache error.log I noticed a lot of entries indicating;
"FATAL: erealloc(): Unable to allocate XX bytes"
From my reading of other posts on other sites this is an indication that there is a major error for Apache and it does simply shut down.
My question(s) are;
Does anyone know what might be causing this behaviour?
If so, does anyone know how to fix it?
If not, is there some workaround that anyone can suggest? I have set the service to restart after failures but that is not helping. Is there some other approach to auto restarting Apache after a failure like this?
