Apache Fails With Error "failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit" (Doc ID 1349882.1)

Last updated on MAY 08, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Applications Technology Stack - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using the adapcctl.sh script to start Apache in Release 12, it fails with an error like:

12/07/11-15:32:56 :: adapcctl.sh: starting OPMN managed OHS instance

opmnctl: starting opmn managed processes...
================================================================================
opmn id=xxx.yyy.com:6202
   0 of 1 processes started.

ias-instance id=DEV_dev.dev.xxx.yyy

Error
--> Process (index=1,uid=1561342258,pid=14927)
   failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit
   Log:
   /oracle/dev/inst/apps/DEV_dev/logs/ora/10.1.3/opmn/HTTP_Server~1.log


12/07/11-15:33:00 :: adapcctl.sh: exiting with status 204

================================================================================
 

The log file HTTP_Server~1.log referenced does not exactly reports a root-cause for the failure, so further analysis is required to identify what prevents Apache from being started.
