Php – Apache error [notice] Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477 — Restarting


I'm using PHP5, CodeIgniter and Apache. The localhost php pages were loading fine and then suddenly they started crashing Apache.

The web pages seem to get to different stages of loading when apache crashes.

The only interesting line in the Apache error log file says :

[notice] Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477 — Restarting.

There is a lot of discussion of this issue on the web but it seems there is no one solution, different people have described different solutions that worked for their system.

Suggestions Appreciated.

Best Solution

This problem often happens in Windows because of smaller Apache’s default stack size. And it usually happens when working with php code that allocates a lot of stacks.

To solve this issue, add the following at the end of apache config file, httpd.conf

<IfModule mpm_winnt_module>
    ThreadStackSize 8888888

AND restart apache. i take this solution from this site.
