: I have a server configured with about 30 seperate domains and all of which run their own httpd deamon.
: It seems I have to reboot every two days to keep the system from slowing down. Is there any documentation
: on setting up a server this way or does anyone have any advice on how I can keep the server from slowing
: down so much?
: Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
you may just be able to get away with causing the WebServer to 'hangup';
that is, to 'restart' itself.
I use this trick to get automatic logfile archiving. What you need to do
is to set up a cron job that will call a script which cause the WebServer
Note :- I'm using the most groovy NCSA 151 WebServer
The Perl script I use (a stripped version anyway) does this:
# Get the process ID of the 'parent' WebServer. There's probably a more
# 'elogant' way of doing this!
# Return the process ID of the 'parent' WebServer.
# Restart the WebServer.
The only bit you'll need to change is the line:
so, that this script accesses the 'PidFile' set in the WebServer's
Hope this helps,
