    RE: apache make httpd cannot allocate memory
    Thanks, Rubberman. I have learned that I cannot create swap space because I'm using a godaddy virtual dedicated server. http://support.godaddy.com/groups/web-hosting/forum/topic/am-i-allowed-to-setup-swap-disk-on-vps/

    RE: apache make httpd cannot allocate memory
    FYI, my swap space appears to be 0 bytes. As I understand it, swap space sort of extends the actual amount of RAM that can be used, and so here I have 0. This implies that my system was attempting to allocate more than 1GB of RAM. Is there a log file I can check to see how much RAM the system was attempting to allocate at the time that I was running this build? Here is the /proc/meminfo snapshot. MemTotal: 1048576 kB MemFree: 976056 kB Buffers: 0 kB Cached: 0 kB SwapCached: 0 kB Active: 0 kB Inactive: 0 kB HighTotal: 0 kB HighFree: 0 kB LowTotal: 1048576 kB LowFree: 976056 kB SwapTotal: 0 kB SwapFree: 0 kB Dirty: 0 kB Writeback: 0 kB AnonPages: 0 kB Mapped: 0 kB Slab: 0 kB PageTables: 0 kB NFS_Unstable: 0 kB Bounce: 0 kB CommitLimit: 0 kB Committed_AS: 0 kB VmallocTotal: 0 kB VmallocUsed: 0 kB VmallocChunk: 0 kB HugePages_Total: 0 HugePages_Free: 0 HugePages_Rsvd: 0 Hugepagesize: 2048 kB

    RE: apache make httpd cannot allocate memory
    @mfilpot, yeah, I should have written it down. I believe it was an malloc out of memory exception. It didn't really say much else than that. I'm guessing that I have somewhat less than 20GB of free space; that's how much comes with the plan, and I haven't installed anything except for apache. @Rubberman, not sure how much swap space is allocated. I'll check tonight. @marc, is that so? It could see compiles requiring a lot of memory to hold all the definitions and trees. FYI, the installation was successful - happy!

    apache make httpd cannot allocate memory
    I was doing the build step for apache http server, and I kept getting this error saying something could not allocate memory. I did some searching, and I didn't exactly find an answer, but it seems that the problem may have been that my server just didn't have enough memory to execute the make in one go. So I kept on trying, and that seems to have worked (still working on the apache installation). My question is: do you think the lack of memory was really the problem here? I just setup this virtual dedicated linux server with godaddy. It's the smallest version, economy, but it says it has 1GB of RAM, so I'm surprised.
