Apache crashes: Parent: child process exited with status 255

    I've installed Vista and now Apache keeps crashing on me! Everytime I open my local version of my website it loads 50% of the page, "waits" like 10 or 15 seconds and than proceeds and finishes the page. Windows gives me a nice message "Apache HTTP Server has encountered an error" followed by a "Apache had to be closed down" message.

    In the log it shows this:
    [Thu Jun 28 21:34:33 2007] [notice] Child 2540: Child process is running

    So, apache is alive, I open my site (wich runs fine on the www AND previously under Windows XP!), outputs like 50%, crashes, restarts and finishes the page. But WHY?

    I don't think Apache is officially supported in Vista yet :)

    It is problem in php script.
    I've had this problem. It was circular reference in script.
    I thik vista can identify problem in apache and then stops it - i think.
