UniServer 8.3.1 Apache crash on start

Recommended Posts

I've played with UniServer from time to time in the past, and just started using the coral series in the last week. Long story short, I've discovered that when I start Apache from a UniServer folder on my desktop, it works fine. If I move it somewhere else (e.g. C:\, D:\), it crashes when I try to start it. Since UniServer is portable, is this a Windows permission or security issue? Am I overlooking something? I'm running Win7 x64 with UAC enabled. Please let me know if I can provide more information.

 

Thanks for your help, and thanks for your great software!

Coral add some lines in the httpd.conf ( C:\UniServer\usr\local\apache2\conf\ ) after using it. You can't simple move the UniServer folder.

 

Search all the old paths and change it to the new (C:/UniServer/XYZ):

 

For example:

ServerRoot "C:/UniServer/usr/local/apache2"

Thanks for your reply, traxxus. I did some experimenting and discovered that the Start_as_program.exe utility automatically adjusts those paths when it runs; they appear correct no matter where I put the UniServer folder. The help documentation still describes the program as portable, so I feel like there's more going on. Any further thoughts?

 

Incidentally, I learned how to read the error log. The last line before every crash is below, but it looks unhelpful.

 

[Mon Feb 27 20:36:45.983058 2012] [mpm_winnt:notice] [pid 5048:tid 212] AH00354: Child: Starting 64 worker threads.

I too am a long time on and off user of Uniserver and came back to test this latest version.

 

I have experienced the exact same problem while using Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

 

The strange thing is, if I use the "start as a service" option, then it works on C:\Uniserver.

 

As suggested, I downgraded to 8.1.2.

 

Unfortunately, I am not able to get that to load, at all. :)

 

Start_as_program.exe executed from an administrator command prompt simply opens a blank window.

I just tried the 8.4.0 release, and whether by design or not, the issue above is fixed on my computer. Whatever voodoo magic you folks are working, keep it up! Thanks again for the software.
