A rather vexing problem. Whenever I use apachectl graceful or kill
USR1 on the PID for httpd, the server terminates. I have done
numerous google searches for anything similar and drew a blank. I
asked a few friends of mine, and received vacant stares in return :).
So, I'm asking here.
I tried recompiling the server. That didn't work.
I tried moving the pidfile to /usr/local/apache/logs (thinking maybe
it had something to do with dir/file ownership). That didn't work.
I recently upgraded the server from 1.3.9 to 1.3.26 (I did try 2.0,
but that caused so many other problems, I went back to 1.3.26).
apachectl graceful and kill USR1 worked fine on 1.3.9, then died after
I would appreciate any pointers on how to possibly resolve this. It's
causing me further annoyance as I have newsyslog kill USR1 the PID
whenever it rotates the log, so every few days the server terminated
(I have since paused newsyslog on the apache logs).
Thanks in advance for your help,
