Hi there,

I'm sorry to be sending this to the bugs line when this is (hopefully) a 
stupid question....  Unfortunately, I don't have access to a news server 
so I have to bother you with email.

Anyway, the situation is: We are running UNIXWARE (version 1.1.2) on a 
UNISYS pentium 90 machine which acts as our web (and email) server.  I am 
trying to install apache on our server as the primary httpd. Right now, 
I've got it installed and running on a different port from the old (CERN) 
web server so I can test it.  In general, everything is working perfectly. 
 Apache is much faster and seems to have less problems - fewer crashes, 
etc.  The trouble is that when I leave apache running for a few hours or 
over-night it shuts itself down!  When I arrive in to work the next 
morning, apache is not running anymore....  Is this normal?  I thought 
this might be due to inactivity, so I wrote a shell script that goes out 
and tries to request a web document (through lynx) from apache once an 
hour.  The script runs but apache still shuts itself off and doesn't 
restart when there is an http request.  WHY???  How do I stop this???

I hope this is an easy fix, or that I'm missing something obvious, so I 
can switch over to apache for good!!!   Please let me know!!!

Thanks in advance for your time,
