The Question is:

I've installed csws v1.3 but I'm unable to get apache started. In the
 apache$server.log the failure is indicated as 'bad group name APACHE$WWW"  can
 you help me with this problem?

The Answer is :

  If the APACHE$WWW username within SYSUAF lacks the alphanumeric
  AP_HTTPD group name, it would appear that there are problems
  with the cluster or system configuration, or the associated
  security identifier has been removed.
  Assuming that there are no other usernames within the UIC group
  for the APACHE$WWW username, you can recreate this identifier by
  removing the username entirely and invoking
  to recreate the username.  The associated UIC group should now
  show as AP_HTTPD, and the (obviously) USERNAME as APACHE$WWW.
  Alternatively, you MAY be able to resolve this with the AUTHORIZE
  command ADD/IDENTIFIER=[uicgroup,*], as described in the OpenVMS
  FAQ.  Please see the FAQ section entitled:
    How do I change the text in a user's UIC identifier?
  If this is a cluster, please ensure you have the correct
  clusteer-wide logical name declarations for the core system
  files.   OpenVMS V7.2 and later have listings of the core
  (shared) OpenVMS files available in SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE.
  Ensure that all files are appropriately configured, and --
  in this case -- particularly check SYSUAF and RIGHTSLIST.
