Subject [users@httpd] Unable to detach child process
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2007 12:59:20 GMT
I am having problems with a web application which is used to stop and 
start 2 system services. If these are started from httpd then when httpd 
is killed the system services also die - not what I expect or want.

I am using apache 2.0.52 running on RedHat linux.

The web application runs some ruby cgi code which in turn runs a script 
file containing:


   sudo /etc/init.d/simacqdriver $1 &> /dev/null

The simacqdriver file is a standard startup script which runs a java 

The running process shows up as:

   pid       ppid    user
   20472     1       root

The process is not owned by any of the httpd processes so I do not 
understand why it is connected to httpd stopping.

Any advice gratefully received.
