Determining the root cause of an Apache Application fault

I'm running WLS 7.0SP2 on Windows XP and have the WLS Apache plug-in in Apache 2.0.49.

I get this application fault. Of course the fault also pops an alert box that requires a the alert to be closed before Apache continues processing...

"Faulting application apache.exe, version 2.0.49.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x008be6ae."

The only other **non-default** module I'm using mod_headers.

from my httpd.conf file:
LoadModule access_module modules/mod_access.so
LoadModule actions_module modules/mod_actions.so
LoadModule alias_module modules/mod_alias.so
LoadModule asis_module modules/mod_asis.so
LoadModule auth_module modules/mod_auth.so
LoadModule autoindex_module modules/mod_autoindex.so
LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so
LoadModule dir_module modules/mod_dir.so
LoadModule env_module modules/mod_env.so

LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so
LoadModule imap_module modules/mod_imap.so
LoadModule include_module modules/mod_include.so
LoadModule isapi_module modules/mod_isapi.so
LoadModule log_config_module modules/mod_log_config.so
LoadModule mime_module modules/mod_mime.so
LoadModule negotiation_module modules/mod_negotiation.so
LoadModule setenvif_module modules/mod_setenvif.so
LoadModule userdir_module modules/mod_userdir.so


I have the same problem in Apache 2.0.45, 2.0.46, 2.0.47, 2.0.48, and 2.0.49


the Apache error.log has these entries 5 seconds after the event.log records the above "Faulting application" message:
[Wed Apr 14 12:28:39 2004] [notice] Parent: child process exited with status 3221225502 -- Restarting.
[Wed Apr 14 12:28:39 2004] [notice] Parent: Created child process 2184
[Wed Apr 14 12:28:39 2004] [notice] Child 2184: Child process is running
[Wed Apr 14 12:28:39 2004] [notice] Child 2184: Acquired the start mutex.
[Wed Apr 14 12:28:39 2004] [notice] Child 2184: Starting 250 worker threads.
(I guess the delay is from having to click the button)

Has anyone else run across this problem and have a solution? I'd REALLY like to know the root cause.

Thanks,

Geezer

have you found any solution to this problem? I get a similar problem. My event viewer shows Faulting application Apache.exe, version 2.0.49.0, faulting module libapr.dll, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00007a53. and sometimes the faulting module is ntdll.dll.

no, alhuebel, not yet...the experts are failing me on this one... ;-)

I've reviewed a hundred or so event Log entries and have never yet seen ANY dll specified.  Are you also running the WLS plug-in?

I am not running the WLS plugin. Not sure what that is. I am running PHP though.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

On another note, I have submitted the question to an apache mailing list and gotten no reply either. This problem is a tough one I suppose. If you have any other information e-mail it to forums@huebels.net.

BEA provided an answer for me.  They sent me the module from SP5 and it works fine.  

The simple solution: upgrade to SP5


Clean up is fine with me
