Starting R12 Apache errors with status 204 after Cloning

1 comment
If we face in issue starting the Apache as below after cloning.
$INST_TOP/admin/scripts/ start exiting with status 204


The issue persists even after the below script is run in the Target instance, to remove references to the SSO configuration of the Source instance: -script=SetSSOReg -removereferences=yes
This is  due to residual references to SSO configuration in the <SID_hostname>.xml context file.

The "s_mod_osso_conf_comment" variable enables or disables mod_osso for R12. This variable is updated by the SSO registration utility for R12.


First Fix:-
If the instance is SSO enabled the deregister SSO and register back SSO properly.Check the log file of SSO for any issues.

Start the Apache service to re-test the issue.
Second Fix:-
This variable should have a value "#" if the instance is not SSO enabled.

1. Backup the $CONTEXT_FILE.

2. Edit the parameter  "s_mod_osso_conf_comment" in the $CONTEXT_FILE using 

    editContext utility,  or manually using a text editor

3. Set the value for the above parameter to "#"
    <mod_osso_conf_comment oa_var="s_mod_osso_conf_comment"/># 


4. Save the changes and run Autoconfig
    If you are facing issue while running autoconfig.The use $AD_TOP/bin/adconfig utility and 

    provide full path of the context file whihc has been updated.

5. Start the Apache service to re-test the issue

  1. Statistics show that as of October 2006, the percentage of websites hosted on Apache server is 61.64% of all websites. Another interesting statistic is that in the October 2006 survey, the total number of websites reported was almost 98 million sites. This number grew from September to October by 1.08 million.
