Subject RE: [users@httpd] Child errors causing Apache to exit
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2005 08:47:21 GMT
Sorry for the lack of info.

OS:  Redhat Enterprise Linux 3
Apache 1.3.34
PHP 4.4.0
mod_security

This server only keeps an error log and loglevel crit because of how active it is.  Access,
transfer, and other logs actually end up causing the system to slow down.  This isn't a hardware
issue, but instead it is just extremely active.

We've never had these issues before.  They just started showing up a few weeks ago.

I will see about running the access log for a short period of time.

Thanks.

How about a little more information? OS? Apache version? What modules are compiled in &
loaded? What additional applications are involved (mod_perl, SSL, PHP, SQL etc)?

Also, cross reference the alerts with the access list using the timestamp and identify the
requests that are causing the crashes. Then re-issue the request and try to reproduce it.


Note that the error condition is arising in a low-level call which may not be aware which
application called it - hence the lack of details...
