While working on Oracle HTTP Server, one of the errors I encountered following while starting the instance immediately after installation.

"[alert] (22) Invalid argument : setgid : unable to set group id to Group 4294967295"

Are you in the same situation as I was?

It sounds funny, but Group directive in httpd.conf is commented by default. I don’t know why.

To fix this, all you have to do is configure Group directive in httpd.conf file of your Oracle HTTP Server instance.

  • Search for Group in httpd.conf
  • Uncomment Group and specify group name of User which will operate OHS


User oracle Group oinstall

Start OHS now, you shouldn’t see those error anymore.

Did it help?
