This is a very strange occurance.
Running Apache 1.3.19
Sun Ultra 2 w/512 meg
We are running several web servers on this box.
Maybe about 25 total. We also use a shopping cart program
written in cgi. Our email form scripts are written in cgi.
Ok, here is the weird and strange happenings we are running into.
Every so often the shopping cart program will not allow
you to "view the next 25 items". Clicking that button just brings them
back to the shopping carts home page.
When this happens with the cgi forms, submitting the form
returns an error as if their is a field missing and there are not any
missing or empty fields.
Now if I "./apachectl restart", both of the above seems to work fine.
Then a couple hours, sometimes a day, sometimes a few days or even a week later
it happens again. We never know unless a client calls about the form
I'm thinking there may be some sort of process that gets killed.
Any ideas on what that process would be?
Any way to monitor the system to find out what process that would
be or what is happening to it?
I am lost with this issue.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
