"All workers are in error state" error from httpd when setting up mod_cluster

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When I attempt to access the application through Apache I get a 503 and there is no entry in the error_log other than "All workers are in error state". I know the app is up because I can hit JBoss directly (bypassing Apache), on port 8080, and bring up the first screen of the app.
