Address already in use error

During installation of Cordys BOP4 (CU17) we ran into the following problem.

I tried to change the client connection point address of the WebGateway, but still no success.

Eventually it appeared to be an Apache Config problem.

In <Apache_Install_Dir>/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.conf there is a setting.

# worker MPM
# StartServers: initial number of server processes to start
# MaxClients: maximum number of simultaneous client connections
# MinSpareThreads: minimum number of worker threads which are kept spare
# MaxSpareThreads: maximum number of worker threads which are kept spare
# ThreadsPerChild: constant number of worker threads in each server process
# MaxRequestsPerChild: maximum number of requests a server process serves
<IfModule mpm_worker_module>
    ServerLimit           1
    ThreadLimit         200
    StartServers          1
    MaxClients          200
    MinSpareThreads      25
    MaxSpareThreads     200 
    ThreadsPerChild     200
    MaxRequestsPerChild   0

The important setting here is StartServers. This value MUST be "1".
