           Summary: CRL files not re-read by HUP
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.52
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_ssl
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jhaar@trimble.co.nz


I have a CentOS 4.1 server running httpd-2.0.52-12.ent.centos4 using client
certificates for authentication. 

We have an internal CA that regenerates CRLs every hour, and they are signed as
being valid for 24 hours. We have an automated process for pushing those CRL
files out to Web servers and other devices that need them.

On this 2.0.52 server, the revocation data is referenced via:

SSLCARevocationFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crl/Our-CA.crl

What is happening is that even though that file is being updated with a new CRL
file every hour, only a full restart (stop, start) of Apache makes it re-read
the CRL! If we send a HUP, it doesn't re-read it.

At that stage you see the "Found CRL is expired - revoking all certificates
until you get updated CRL" error message and noone can access the server via
certs any more.
