    My apache keeps stopping with "caught SIGTERM, shutting down" at random times throughout the day. I am running Centos 6.6 and apache 2.2. I also noticed the line in my cron log file:
    "vps12179 /usr/bin/crontab[2832]: (root) LIST (root)"
    that occurs at the 1 second before I get the SIGTERM error. The 2832 will change, but the rest of the information stays the same.

    From what I can tell this is just doing a list of the cron jobs.

    Am I correct in that this is just listing the cron jobs, and why would this cause apache to stop?

    Also should this be occurring on a daily basis?

    Hello :)

    Do you notice any additional error messages in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log at the time of the Apache failure? Do you have any third-party applications installed that can kill processes deemed to use too many resources?

    Thank you.
