Please help! Upgraded from 2.0.53 to 2.2 and Apache service crashes and burns.
Posted on 2006-05-10
Hello everyone! I hope you can help me today, because we're in a bit of a bind.
The two computers we're dealing with are a Windows XP SP2 workstation and a Windows 2000 Server.
The WinXP machine had Apache 2.0.53 installed originally and the initial configuration worked perfectly. Then we upgraded to Apache 2.2. Suddenly, the Apache service will not start and crashes when it tries to start. The crash only happens when the documentroot is set to a remote location on the Win2000 Server (for example: //ServerName/htdocs).
When documentroot is set to a local directory on the XP machine using 2.2, everything works fine. But, when the documentroot is changed to a shared location on our Win2000 Server, then the service fails and crashes. Crazy thing is, when 2.0.53 was installed, having the documentroot set to the Win2000 Server location caused no problems at all. The problem only started when we upgraded.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thank you so much.
