Subject Re: Linux crashes after shutting down web application
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2003 12:27:59 GMT

I find it incredibly difficult to believe that Tomcat or Apache could 
"crash" or "hang" a properly configured Linux system.

As far as shutdown/start procedure:

To start, assuming both Apache and Tomcat are down:

1) start Tomcat
2) WAIT until Tomcat is ready
3) start Apache

To stop, assuming both Apache and Tomcat are running:

1) stop Apache
2) stop Tomcat

When shutting down, you don't want to stop Tomcat first, because Apache 
might still receive requests that it will try to send to Tomcat in the 

If you ask me, there is something else going on with your Linux system 
besides a problem with Apache or Tomcat.
