Subject RE: Memory leaks on adding module directives on virtual host.
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2009 07:20:47 GMT

Thanks for your reply.. 
We do have Cleanup function which frees up all the malloc'ed memory space. The apache is running
fine and there is no memory leak when the module specific directives are removed from the
Virtual host, memory leak happens and grows only when the module specifc directives are in
the Virtual host. 
Usually the virtual host takes the default directives and if the directives are placed inside
the virtual host then it is overWrittened.. Is that some Where in the Cleanup function i need
to free up the virtual host memory on graceful restart. ?
Please guide me. 
Thanks, Jaysingh.
