Apache Children Fail to Respawn after Multiple SIGHUP's
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
After a multiple amount of SIGHUP's - the Apache master process fails to
Send 5-6 SIGHUP signals to Apache master process
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find Apache master process with pstree command
2. Send SIGHUP signal five or six times
3. Test port 80 connections, or view pstree to see if children have
The apache server fails to respond to HTTP requests. Subsequent SIGHUP's
have no result. The server requires a restart.
Restart of server.
For my system information - you may take a look at RHN for
venus.underscoresolutions.com.au or mail me. This bug existed in even the
standard version of Apache 1.3.19 from the redhat ftp site.
This bug seems to be fixed in the rpm 'apache-1.3.22-2'. This is a 7.2 package
however. I am not aware if this bug is now repaired in the older 7.1.
Thanks for the report. This is a mass bug update; since this release
of Red Hat Linux is no longer supported, please either:
a) try and reproduce the bug with a supported version of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux or Fedora Core, and re-open this bug as appropriate
after changing the Product field, or,
b) if relevant, try and reproduce this bug using the current version
of the upstream package, and report the bug upstream.
This bug is still reproducable on httpd-2.0.50-2.1 in FC2. Please reopen.
