Subject RE: Apache, root, and core files.
Date Mon, 20 Nov 2000 18:06:43 GMT
Check your 'ulimit -a' and see what the size of Cores Is. Corefiles are
controlled by the OS 90% of the time. If you are on Solaris x86, it's
possible that it was turned off as a whole in the install. (don't ask why,
it's a bug. I installed over 100 machines with Sol 7 x86, and found this
troublesome thing happen from time to time)After changing the ulimit to
something greater than the availaible memory, or the max size a process will
create, I got cores again.

Subject: Apache, root, and core files.

I'm trying to debug a customer problem and need a difinitive yes/no answer
to the following question:

Does Apache do anything to disable the generation of core files when Apache
started as root (even if it changes to another userid)?

This specific customer happens to be on Linux.

Thanks in advance.
