Errors on server startup

Postby IberoMedia » 25. January 2013 06:19


OS: windows 7
XAMPP: 1.8.1

in file XAMPP/apache/logs/error.log I get the following errors every time I start server:

Code: Select all
[Thu Jan 24 21:11:19.535682 2013] [ssl:warn] [pid 13772:tid 248] AH01873: Init: Session Cache is not configured [hint: SSLSessionCache]

[Thu Jan 24 21:11:20.694748 2013] [ssl:warn] [pid 13932:tid 260] AH01873: Init: Session Cache is not configured [hint: SSLSessionCache]
[Thu Jan 24 21:11:20.740750 2013] [mpm_winnt:notice] [pid 13932:tid 260] AH00354: Child: Starting 150 worker threads.

I followed common fix of modifying file httpd-ssl.conf Namely, uncommenting the SSLSessionCache, but when I do this, I cannot start the server.

If I modify the file httpd-ssl.conf like so:

Code: Select all
#   Inter-Process Session Cache:
#   Configure the SSL Session Cache: First the mechanism
#   to use and second the expiring timeout (in seconds).
#SSLSessionCache         "dbm:logs/ssl.scache"
SSLSessionCache        "shmcb:logs/ssl.scache(512000)"
SSLSessionCacheTimeout  300

I get the following error in the Control Panel console:

Code: Select all
9:18:56 PM  [Apache]    Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
9:18:56 PM  [Apache]    This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
9:18:56 PM  [Apache]    improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
9:18:56 PM  [Apache]    Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
9:18:56 PM  [Apache]    and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

Why are these errors coming up? HOw can I make them go away?

Thank you

It means the changes you made are making Apache crash on startup. You can open a command prompt (Start > Run > cmd) and go to the /xampp directory. Run 'apache_start.bat' to see the specific error that is blocking the startup.
