IssueHow to start an Apache 2.0.x Web server
When starting up the Apache Web server, the processes start up at first (as viewed by ps -ef |grep apache) and then stop. The Web server error log shows the following:

"[alert] (22)Invalid argument: setgid: unable to set group id to Group 4294967295
CauseApache 2 uses a shorthand notation for the group ID in httpd.conf. The Solaris kernel has difficulty with the "#-1" shorthand notation if the Group ID (gid) is over 60000 for the group nobody, which it is in Solaris 8 64-bit.
ResolutionTo correct this issue, open the httpd.conf file and change the line that reads "Group #-1" to "Group nobody". Then restart Apache.
