Description Caniffe 2002-11-19 11:31:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When restarting Apache 7.3 w/mod_frontpage, apache boots as normal but creates 
an additional two semaphore arrays without clearing or deleting the old ones.  
This poses a problem when apache is restarted thus 64 times, then reaching the 
128 semaphore array "normal" limit.  Compiling the apache source and 
integrating php+mysql+mod_frontpage without using RedHat RPMs does not stack 
up on semaphores.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.3, Apache with PHP + MySQL.
2. Install mod_frontpage 1.6.2+
3. Restart Apache

Actual Results:  An additional two semaphore arrays are created, leaving 
redundant semaphores in memory.

Expected Results:  Apache should by nature, delete unused semaphore arrays.

Additional info:

mod_frontpage_mirfak-1.6.2 (external package)
