Subject Re: [users@httpd] Directory index forbidden by rule:/var/www/html/

I'm no expert in Linux or anything .NET.  But isn't restarting your
Linux box a little extreme?  Have you tried manually stopping Apache
and starting it back up again?  Anything good in Apache's error log?
Anything good in the Linux system logs?  How much RAM is being used
by what processes?  Anything gone to swap?  Does mod_mono have any
debugging features that, once enabled, report any useful messages?
If you start up Apache and then leave it alone for 30 minutes, does
your ASP.NET application still freeze up?
