I'm afraid the best way to debug this is likely to be brute force.

Copy your apache config somewhere, mangle it to only run 1 child  
process, then try to start the app with strace -f, pipe the stdout  
and stderr to a file.

You can then grep through that file for instances of myapp_.*\.(conf| 

This should help you build a mental model of how it's going wrong  
(e.g. looking for the wrong filename, looking in the wrong place,  
just not looking etc).

One you know what it's doing wrong in more detail then it'll be  
easier to work out how to debug/fix.
