    Apache Failed last night due to :(

    [Tue May 6 01:29:19 2003] [notice] SIGUSR1 received. Doing graceful restart

    I googled and searched from the modssl.org site. It says that Cannot open SSLSessionCache DBM file `/usr/local/apache/logs/ssl_scache

    That's true bcoz the file itself does not exists on the server.
    Now after a Reboot Apache is fine Now! :)

    My question is why did this happen ? Apache was running fine from 20+ days and then it failed!

    Why apache needed the file Yesterday Only?
    I checked /usr/local/apache/logs

    -rw------- 1 nobody root 0 May 6 06:35 ssl_scache.dir
    -rw------- 1 nobody root 0 May 6 06:35 ssl_scache.pag

    Right now i have these two files.

    Anyways!
    Do i need to create this file and what should i chmod and chown to ?

    Regards,
    :confused:

    Dude, I had the exact same problem two nights ago. I have a cron job to start apache every 10 minutes, and strangely enough restarting apache got rid of the error. It hasn't shown up since, but I would like to know what happened, since the server was down for 8 minutes.

    I know this is an old thread but i cant find much in relation to this issue.

    I am having the same errors in the apache log and my apache keeps restarting and no sites seem to load.

    ive tried 3 easyapache updates and whats been suggested but still no luck

    any other suggestions???

    Instead of putting your root password on the drive in plan text, why not just add:

    to a crontab instead?

    or

    /scripts/restartsrv_httpd

    also if cpservd is down ..this method will work. it doesn't rely on doing things through a lynx web browser and cpservd server and it doesn't require a login like that.
