    getting [emerg] create_mem_node /etc/httpd/logs/manager.node failed: Permission denied Configuration Failed when starting apache on rhel 6 after mod_cluster is added

    Claudianus Adjai Newbie

      Hello all -

      I am getting the following error when I try to start apache on rhel 6.

       

      [emerg] create_mem_node /etc/httpd/logs/manager.node failed: Permission denied

      Configuration Failed

       

      Note that apache was working fine before I uploaded mod_cluster modules and configured it. I also had mod_jk configured and working with apache before this, which I disabled.

       

      I am trying to run apache with mod_cluster 1.2.0.Final on rhel 6 x64.

      I am also starting apache as root (starting it as a regular user causes permission denied error).

      Finally, note that I tried to run it both with SELinux enabled and disabled and the outcome seems to be the same.

       

      My mod_cluster conf looks like below

       

      LoadModule slotmem_module modules/mod_slotmem.so

      LoadModule manager_module modules/mod_manager.so

      LoadModule proxy_cluster_module modules/mod_proxy_cluster.so

      LoadModule advertise_module modules/mod_advertise.so

          

      #Listen 192.168.10.91:8008

       

      <VirtualHost 192.168.10.91:8008>

          <Directory />

              Order deny,allow

              Deny from all

          Allow from 127.0.0.1

          Allow from 192.168.10.

          </Directory>

       

          <Location /mod_cluster-manager>

              SetHandler mod_cluster-manager

              Order deny,allow

          Deny from all

          Allow from 127.0.0.1

              Allow from 192.168.10.

          </Location>

       

               

                ManagerBalancerName mycluster

            KeepAliveTimeout 60

            MaxKeepAliveRequests 0

                ServerAdvertise On

            EnableMCPMReceive

       

      </VirtualHost>

       

      I commented out the Listen directive because I put it in the main http.conf file (having it in this file does not change the outcome) and the above mod_cluster.conf file is located under my /etc/http/conf.d/ folder.

      I also saw that there is a bug related to this error but under Windows OS.

       

      What am I missing?

       

      Thanks

      C
