WAMP child process exited with status 3221225477

Hi Friends,

Few days back i was playing with an internal setup of WAMP Server having Apache 2.2.11, PHP 5.3.0 & MySQL 5.1.36 deployed with Joomla 1.5.21 CMS.

The setup was on a Windows 64-bit AMD x86 environment, but i frequently had my Apache go down due to following error: "Parent: child process exited with status 3221225477"

A quick google & it pointed me that it should be related the associated MySQL dll. After going through various articles & bug reports, it made sense to try out one solution!

The solution was to copy libmySQL.dll available under mysql5.1.36\bin to my WINDOWS\system32 folder and then do a complete machine restart.

I did this & believe me there has been no single Apache shutdown reported due to this error :-)
Hope this helps all WAMP or XMPP deployers.

Apache, WAMP, XMPP, PHP, MySQL, Crash, etc

OMG - I have been searching for a solution for this darn apache shutdown, for over 2 years, and actually had already given up! But you know, can't keep your clients happy with a crashing server, so i looked again today and you saved my day! THANK YOU!!
