CSWS Apache Startup Error?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm trying to install Apache (CSWS) on a alpha with OVMS running.
AlphaServer 300 4/266/1593
OS: VMS /V7.3
TCP: TCPIP V5.3-18
TCPIP is installed and seems to run properly (I can connect with TELNET and FTP)
any time I run apache$startup.com the apache-process will go to HIB and then
000000B4 APACHE$ROL1     HIB      5      711   0 00:00:01.06       640    385
I searched already the SYLOGIN.COM and the APACHE$root:[...] for "set
 term/inquire" and "write sys$output" and commented them all.
Next I granted the user APACHE$ROOT SETPRV-privileges and set it in
 APACHE$ROOT:login.com. Though there schould not be a privileg problem.
"ERROR (0x000024F4): Unable to create parent lock resource APACHE$PARENT_000000AF
[Sun Jun 29 16:06:09 2003] [error] fork: Unable to fork new process "
What can I do to start the Apache properly?
kind regards

The Answer is :

  Please move to OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1, as a start.
  Please install any and all prequisite ECO kits for Apache.
  Please install all mandatory ECO kits for OpenVMS Alpha, and
  the ECO kit for TCP/IP Services.
  Please AUTOGEN the system, paying particular attention to
  the AUTOGEN reports generated, and to the incorporation of
  the existing parameter requirements within MODPARAMS.DAT.
  Parameter entries that are no longer needed should be removed,
  for instance.
  The most likely cause of the error reported here is that one
  or more system parameters is underconfigured or one or more
  process quotas is too low -- probably one related to process
  creation.  It is also quite obviously possible that the
  AlphaServer 300 series itself has insufficient system physical
  memory configured.
