Subject RE: [users@httpd] Strategies for debugging a segmentation fault o n a production ser ver
Date Tue, 21 Jun 2005 16:02:35 GMT
Hi Joshua,

Thanks for the tips.  Forensic looks like it certainly do the trick.  I'm
going to give that a spin.

For 1.3.33, do you know if CoreCumpDirectory is set, if it will generate a
dump when running in non-debug mode?

Thanks again,

Michael
