Description Nigel Jewell 2005-04-26 11:27:32 UTC

Apache 2.0.54
mod_jk 1.2.8
Tomcat 5.0.28
PHP 4.3.10
mod_ssl 2.0.53
OpenSSL 0.9.7e

On Windows XP and Windows 2003 the server dies with the error:

Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477 -- Restarting.

The cause:  I have a PHP page that uses NuSOAP to connect to the server using a
mod_jk worker.  The worker uses Tomcat to obtain a large data set, which should
then be returned to the PHP page.  I suspect that the size of the data set that
is causing the server to fall over.  As the HTTP server falls over (rather than
report an error) it makes PHP/mod_jk/Tomcat/NuSOAP debugging difficult (if not

In the mod_jk log I am also seeing:

could not find empty cache slot from 1 for worker ws01. Rise worker cachesize

I guess this may be related.
Comment 1 Nigel Jewell 2005-04-26 11:48:53 UTC
It should be noted - that if I increase the cachesize in mod_jk, the HTTP server
still falls over (although mod_jk no longer complains).  So this is probably a
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2005-04-28 17:25:20 UTC
A stack trace from the process crash or a precise repro case is needed to be
able to investigate this further.  I suggest you take this up on the appropriate
Jakarta list if you think it's caused by mod_jk.
