Subject Re: Apache 2.2.2 + CGI -> Child Exit?!?
Date Fri, 14 Jul 2006 14:06:01 GMT
Note: In case anyone thinks I posted to the wrong group, I'm really 
looking for:

    * Developer-level info as to if/how a CGI program could cause an
      Apache worker process death in 2.2.2
    * Developer-level pointers on where in mod_cgi we should place
      breakpoints, logging, or the like to try to determine what's going
      wrong -- or if this even makes sense

Of course if there is some out-of-the-box verbosity option I'm missing 
to help with this, I'm all ears.  I used LogLevel debug, of course, but 
it told me nothing new.
