I've installed Apache 2.2 on a Windows XP computer. While browsing my site, I encounter two errors: one indicating that "Apache HTTP Server has encountered a problem and needs to close," and another memory error stating "Apache.exe - Application Error - The memory could not be written." I've attempted to fix this by reinstalling Apache, but the issue persists. In the Apache log, I see the message "[Fri Feb 17 15:35:07 2006] [notice] Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477 -- Restarting," causing frequent restarts. Any suggestions to resolve this frustration?

In this day and age I struggle to believe you're trying to host Apache on Windows XP, let alone Apache 2.2 series. Then I note your log entry is dated 2006.

Why have you posted this question to Apache Lounge in 2023, some 17 years later?

3221225477 is Windows error C0000005 or ACCESS_VIOLATION.

Hard so guess what it is with such an old Apache installation. Maybe some 3rd party module like PHP?

Apologies if my previous post seemed somewhat flippant. I do recall having problems with Apache 2.2 crashing on one system (NT4 I believe) many years ago.

The fix was to increase ThreadStackSize from the default to 8MB.

Code:
<IfModule mpm_winnt_module>
   ThreadStackSize 8388608
</IfModule>

As James says, this is probably due to a third party module such as PHP.

The following question on Stackoverflow substantiates this approach - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5058845/how-do-i-increase-the-stack-size-for-apache-running-under-windows-7.
