Is this FreeBSD?  From man msgsnd that error translates to EAGAIN, which is
explained as:

"There was no space for this message either on the queue, or in the whole
system, and IPC_NOWAIT was set in msgflg."

So, I'm guessing somehow the queue isn't getting initialized properly, or any
number of things, maybe: system doesn't support sysV?  PHP doesn't have
proper permissions?  Do SHM/SEM work ok?  Have you tried sleep(5); then
trying again?
