[mod_backhand-users] Installation/Update of Apache (SuSE7.1->7.3) gives httpd/error_log entries

Hi there,

after the update of my apache, it starts, reports running (rcapache status),
but browser requests are not answered.

in /var/log/httpd/error_log I can see multiple lines (every second) with
increasing <Child>:

[Sat Oct 27 15:40:56 2001] [error] (111)Connection refused: Child 2797 failed
to establish umbilical to moderator!


Can anybody tell me anything about a solution.

(uncommenting the backhand lines in httpd.conf makes my Apache running quite
ok)

Thanks Harro


The full (relevant) part of the log is:

Sounds like your UnixSocketDir is not owned by the user:group that your
Apache runs as.

Hello Theo,

so the group must match, too?!

I understood the Docu that the user must be the same...
I'll try to set it, and report my success/failure...

Thanks,
Harro

[mod_backhand-users] Installation/Update of Apache (SuSE7.1->7.3) gives httpd/error_log entries [In reply to]

Hello Theo,

well, here I am again...

apache runs as wwwrun.root
whereas backhand has wwwrun.nogroup

changing "UnixSocketDir" to both alternatives
didn't work,

Even a chmod 777 /var/lib/backhand couldn't help...

Am I wrong in my understanding?

Which files should appear in the /var/lib/backhand with which permissions?

Thanks
Harro

Eh? Can you verify that's the user/group? What's the output of ps
aux|grep httpd?

> whereas backhand has wwwrun.nogroup

The moderator changes its group from root to nogroup? (running apache
with GID 0 privs is a bad idea).

Can you include the relevant portion of your httpd.conf?

> Am I wrong in my understanding?

Maybe, we'll see, but it sounds more like a config/setup problem than
an understanding problem. ;) -sc

I haven't checked the SuSE distribution, but I would wager it is
compiled as an Apache module. If you are going to go an disable the
lines that make mod_backhand work, you should really be disabling
mod_backhand completely.

Those UnixSocketDir and MulticastStats lines should be surrounded by a
<IfModule mod_backhand.c></IfModule> clause.

Also, at the top of the httpd.conf you should see a LoadModule directive
that loads mod_backhand (and perhaps and AddModule mod_backhand.c).
Comment those out and you should have no problem running without
mod_backhand.

Last time I installed SuSE, I remember mod_backhand being included, but
it was an option that I could opt out of.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

As for the seg fault, this is obviously undesirable and I will look into
it.

Hi Theo,

this last posting was meant as solution, rather than a problem.

yep, that what I did in the very first, and it worked.

As an interested person I still wondered what went wrong, so I looked for the
problem.
With some help by Sean Chittenden (not in this list -> direct -email)
I searched a lot of files for possible config errors.

The result was that, in httpd.conf, the commented lines had to be replaced by
some entries for MulticastStats/AcceptStats
and the Apache felt happy!

An informative message would in fact be less harmful... ;-))

Let me know, if you found a solution.

Anyhow, thanks a lot for all of your and the lists rapid help!
