While working on oracle HTTP Server, one of the errors you will encounter as following while starting the instance immediate after installation.

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

It sounds funny but Group directive in httpd.conf is commented by default. 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

For ex:

User oracle Group oinstall

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