I am running Apache 2.2.14 on Home windows Server 2003, without PHP or MySQL, essentially to proxy like a web server for any Java web application. Every couple of hrs approximately Apache restarts having a message [notice] Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477 -- Restarting.

This (or much the same) problem appears to become most typical for Apache/PHP/MySQL combinations, in which the option would be copying a few .dll's into system32 directory (e.g., http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1138269/apache-error-notice-parent-child-process-exited-with-status-3221225477-rest).

However, within this situation there is no PHP or MySQL involved, so I am wondering the other causes for status 3221225477 restarts might be.

Thank you for insight.
