Content Server module error on apachectl start



I have installed Content server 6.40 / sapdb 7.4 on AIX 5.3 / 64 bit and after install am trying to start / stop the apache web services via apachectl start.

I receive the following error:

nwkwcs:/>apachectl start

Syntax error on line 205

of /etc/opt/freeware/apache/httpd.conf:

Cannot load /opt/freeware/apache/libexec/mod_sapcs.o into server:

0509-022 Cannot load module /opt/freeware/apache/libexec/mod_sapcs.o.

0509-103 The module has an invalid magic number.

/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Steps taken to this point:

1. Installed preconf. rpm Apache module for AIX v. 1.3.31

2. Installed SAP Content Server with SAPDB.

3. Connected successfully to

http://<server>:80/ and shows apache install was OK.

4. Altered httpd.conf with the following:

- changed port from 80 to 1090 to content server default.

- changed servername to myhost.domain

5. Confirmed the mod_sapcs.o file exists and is 64


6. Downloaded the latest mod_sapcs.o in Patch 7 of

Content server and applied. Same error occurred.
