Subject Re: mod_status/1322: System Panics after running fsck and re-hup-ing or stopping Apache process

Synopsis: System Panics after running fsck and re-hup-ing or stopping Apache process

State-Changed-Why:
The problem is that you're trying to repair a disk while
it's in use, which is a major badness under any circumstances.
If you try to change a tyre while a vehicle is in motion,
and you get run over, you've no-one but yourself to blame.

Apache opens some files and immediately unlinks them to
prevent any other process from being able to access (and
particularly modify) them.  This is fairly common
practice.

The workaround, or actually the correct procedure, is
for you to do your repairs on a quiescent filesystem.

Thanks for using Apache!
