    Go on, have a guess
    Such problems seem to be commonly cause by excessively large log files. What are the size of your apache logs in:

    /etc/httpd/logs/*

    If they're large, rotate them.

    Were you able to resolve the problem? We're having this same issue on one of our other servers.

    Here is the error that is produced in the error log:

    accept_mutex_off: Invalid argument
    [Wed Jul 25 16:13:19 2007] [alert] Child 28130 returned a Fatal error... \nApache is exiting!

    We recompiled Apache without any problems, but the issue still occurs.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Recompiling Apache/PHP fixed the problem for us.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    This issue can happen if you are not removing the semaphore arrays properly. :)

    Are you using any scripts for removing semaphore arrays in the server?

    If so, please check the script and correct it.;)

    Chears!
