    I just updated to the latest version of apache 1.3.28, ever since the update it seems like there are a bunch of apache processes that are hanging.

    I recompiled apache with the latest update earlier this morning around 5 am, around 11am, there were 390 processes running on the server (normally 100 - 120) then after sorting top by time I see multiple httpd processes running for quite some time, HOURS! What's going on with this? It seems to slowly build up then after restarting apache it's fine, but a few hours later it builds up again.

    Any ideas on this?

    Thanks
    Rob

    I'm having a similar problem with zombies since the new apache update. It seems cgi scripts are the problem. All zombies are from cgi scripts and over a few hours time there are up to 100+ zombies. I then just kill the parents since the parents just don't know their children died. So sad... Seriously...

    Anyone else seen this?

    The moral of the story is, dont upgrade till you know the outcome. HELLO! Why are you people ugrading to something that is probably untested? We have enough problem with 1.3.27 then to upgrade to something else is just ridiculous.

    First of all Cpanel upgrade apache automaticly. Second, the upgrade fix several (altho minor) security problems. I will keep with this version and not downgrade, even tho I got some zombies. Boowaa, big deal!

    Anyhow, I've posted a bug report to apache so a patch should be out soon enough.

    I may have missed it, but I didn't read in this thread where anyone asked for your snide comments... However, after reading several of your previous posts, I see these types of comments from you are par for the course. I'm sure now you'll have something really witty to say. I tingle with anticipation.

    To those that matter in this thread: I apologize, I can't believe I just took the bait (hook, line, and sinker) from such an obvious troll... sorry. Back to the thread at hand.

    The moral of story is you should know what you're talking about. I didn't even mean to upgrade to apache 1.3.28. I was going to just compile Apache w/ PHP Suexec and I seemingly just picked the perfect time right after .28 was released.

    Not talking about you. I was talking to buccaneerob who says "I just upgraded to 1.3.28", or was i just imagining that he wrote that?

    in whm news now

    WHM news of cpanel ....

    Apache 1.3.28 Zombie/Defunct Process Bug If you have updated to apache
    1.3.28 before 2pm EST Sunday July 20th, you should update it again as a
    serious flaw has been discovered which prevents child proceses from
    terminating. We have developed a patch that resolves this problem, however
    you must rebuild apache to get this fix.

    Don't think anyone asked for your two cents. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. What's the point of making new software if no one upgrades? Someone has to do it.

    Exactly my sentiments BuccaneerRob.
    This sexy_guy's been a pain in the arse in everything he does. I"m even surprised he has clients if he talks this way. Must be two-faced and good at it.

    :)

    You know, I rebuilt apache this morning after I saw the post about the zombie processes being fixed. I didn't have this problem it seemed. I rebuilt anyways and now I'm having it. That is just retarded lol. I'm rebuilding again now as I'm typing this so the most of you might wanna check your process list again just to make sure this is infact been fixed..
