Subject Re: [users@httpd] Graceful restart doesn't work when adding aVirtualHost.
Date Sat, 31 Jan 2004 17:17:21 GMT
Look at process list to make sure all httpd instances really stoopped (aren't
there).  you may have to manually kill them.   I believe the apachectl script
really only checks the pid file to see if all instances have stopped.  Don't
recall exactly without looking at it, but do know I've had this same type of
problem.   Checking the process list with 'ps -ef |grep httpd' should tell you.

Hello All.

I'm having a strange problem and I can't find any solution.

The problem is this:

1) I start the server with "./apachectl startssl". I get the "./apachectl
startssl: httpd started", that is OK.

2) I add a new VirtualHost to the list.

3) I restart the server: "./apachectl graceful". I get the msg "./apachectl
graceful: httpd gracefully restarted" that is OK too. But it really didn't
The error_log shows only this line: "[Fri Jan 30 14:46:41 2004] [notice]
SIGUSR1 received.  Doing graceful restart", but no the rest of the usual
ones that are:
"[Fri Jan 30 14:01:30 2004] [notice] SIGUSR1 received.  Doing graceful
[Fri Jan 30 14:01:30 2004] [notice] Apache configured -- resuming normal
[Fri Jan 30 14:01:30 2004] [notice] Accept mutex: sysvsem (Default:

4) The server get stopped. And then obviously I have to start it again.
5) The VirtualHost does work perfectly. There is no problem using it.


What am I running?

Distribution: Slackware 9.0
Kernel: 2.4.23
Apache: 1.3.29 with mod_ssl-2.8.16-1.3.29, php-4.3.4.
OpenSSL: openssl-0.9.7c


When the server has started with "./apachectl start" (ssl disabled) it works

Help please!

Thanks in advance.
