FAQ
Hello,

I am using Windows XP SP2, Apache 2.2.4, Active perl 5.8.8 build 822,
mod_perl 2.03, and Catalyst 5.7010.

If I want to start apache and if I have a virtualhost that uses Catalyst,
most of the times it gives the following errors and doesn't want to start:

[Sun Sep 23 00:35:36 2007] [crit] master_main: create child process failed.
Exiting.
[Sun Sep 23 00:36:06 2007] [notice] Parent: Forcing termination of child
process 36
[Sun Sep 23 00:36:06 2007] [info] removed PID file E:/apache/logs/httpd.pid
(pid840)

It is strange because sometimes even if I use Catalyst, the server starts,
but very seldom.
If I used just a virtualhost without Catalyst, but only with mod_perl
handlers, the server starts fine.

I've searched very much on the web these days about this issue, and I heard
that this error can be caused by some antiviruses or antispyware programs,
and I've uninstalled Nod32, however these errors still appear.
I have a new computer and I haven't used Apache with Catalyst on it until
now (Core 2 Duo).
I've tried many things, like resetting the TCP/IP settings and configuring
them again, changing some settings for the network card, closing some
programs that run permanently, however nothing changes. Very rarely Apache
starts, but most of the times it gives the errors above.

Yesterday I convinced it to start and it worked with a Catalyst app, but I
added the plugin I18N to the application, and it didn't want to start
anymore even after I remove that module call from the app.

Do you have any idea if Catalyst can do something that could make Apache
give those errors?
I think some modules from Catalyst have a kind of incompatibility with
something else from my computer, because without Catalyst, the web server
always start.

I've also reinstalled perl and installed Catalyst using ppm (a version a
little older), and Apache still doesn't want to start. It gives the
following errors this time:

Thank you very much for any helpful idea.
