Subject Re: [users@httpd] aptmpZbGOTJ files in apache CacheRoot
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2008 17:24:47 GMT

The server was shutdown via apachectl stop.  ~50,000
of those files remain in CacheRoot.  Server restart
and still those files remain.  Seems like a bug.
Unless there's some other mechanism that's supposed to
take them out of their "temporary" state.
