Subject kill -HUP vs. httpd -k graceful
Date Thu, 02 Dec 2004 18:41:07 GMT
Is there a difference between kill -HUP and httpd -k graceful? One user 
has reported problems with using kill -HUP

    [Fri Nov 19 00:00:05 2004] [warn] child process 12783 still did not
    exit, sending a SIGTERM
    [Fri Nov 19 00:00:05 2004] [notice] SIGHUP received.	Attempting to
    panic: pthread_key_create	

and dumps core...

whereas httpd -k graceful doesn't have this problem.

Unfortunately I can't tell you which MPM he was using, since he didn't 
bother to tell.
