It seems this problem has never been reported in this newsgroup so I guess posting it
shouldn't be a bad idea. I understand the description of the problem isn't that good, but
let's have a try... :)
I recently upgraded Apache from 1.0.5 to 1.1.1. Compiling went just fine: no warnings,
errors, etc. The machine is a Linux 2.0.21 box.
The problem is: when running Apache 1.1.1, while loading some heavy pages from a PC on the
local ethernet network [with Netscape (any version), while with Lynx and libwww's get
everything's right], the download hangs and the page stands still with some missing images
while Netscape's logo tells the download is in progress...
Another sympton is: when running Apache 1.1.1, killing the parent process doesn't effect child
processes. I mean: while before with Apache 1.0.5 killing the parent process (using the pid
found in logs/httpd.pid) resulted in a complete httpd server shutdown, now it seems every
child process isn't recognized as a child of the parent process and isn't killed when the
parent process dies.
When downgrading to 1.0.5 all troubles disappear. Furthermore, I can't find stange stuff in
the error_log file. I'm running virtual hosts but even commenting the <VIRTUALHOST> directives
and restarting the server doesn't solve the problem, so I guess it has nothing to do with
May anyone explain what's happening, please? If replying with a posting, please include a CC:

Thanks a lot in advance!
