Description JW 2008-03-09 19:04:01 EDT
Description of problem: The httpd logrotate script uses SIGHUP rather than SIGUSR1 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): httpd-2.2.6-3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. read /etc/logrotate.d/httpd 2. read /var/www/manual/stopping.html Actual results: Active httpd child connections abruptly terminated. Expected results: Active httpd child connections should continue to completion. Additional info: Creating new log files is not an urgent task that requires possibly active child connections to be abruptly terminated. Much better to use SIGUSR1 which will allow for graceful termination of child processes after completing any active request.

This greatly affects servers that serve a large number of HTTP connections. Log rotation in my case occurs at minimum hourly. The easiest fix is to modify httpd's init script to signal USR1 during reload.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
