Subject RE: Archiva crashes after a couple of days

It sounds like the default cron expressions are the culprit then.  I
imagine it was tested on the amount of repos and with the amount of
artifacts that a big company might have and thus it causes problems.

Could you give me the cron expression that you are using for repo scans
and database updates?

I too had this same issue.  Make sure your cron syntax is correct as it
is not standard unix cron syntax.  The first entry is a second number,
not minutes.  I initially (and accidentally) setup our cron jobs to run
at a crazy pace, I think every second.

I asked the mailing list if there was a way to clear these queue of
events so I could let the app run its course, but received no answers.
i eventually had to reinstall fresh to get around it but all works great

FYI, we're on RHEL 4 update 4 as well.
