Subject Re: [PATCH] Associating unload_module cleanup with the global poolrather than pconf
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2000 18:22:49 GMT

Some of the modules had to check for which pass of init they were
in. I know its ugly, but some of the modules (like mod_rewrite) 
start external programs or allocate structures and fill in
pointers. At the very least these modules must kill these external
programs and/or clean up the pointers between init phases. The
cleanest most efficient way seems to be to only start the process/
allocate the memory on the second pass. The phase check was added
recently to mod_rewrite to fix some initialization errors.
