    I am not sure what ONE of the two processes is...

    Code:
    10314   (httpd)         /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd /home2/wwwmyho/public_html
    	/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSSL
    	
    	
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    18382   (httpd)         /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd /
    	/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSSL
    Basically, I know the first one is someone attemptint to access that particular directory. The second one, doesnt show which directory is being used here. I have a LOT of both right now and my server is overloaded.

    Should I be concerned about the second one?

    Thanks

    Please help with what ?

    I got a good flame suit so here comes some advice for all the posters that do not get a response.


    If you post and do not recieve a response in a couple of days then its more than likely 1 of 2 things

    #1 Your issue is unique and no one knows what to do to fix it, which in this case you would need to submit a trouble ticket

    #2 Your question is one that any system admin/web host should know the answer to or would be able to find with just a little bit of searching and common sense. And therefor none of us will help you with it

    Before posting a question, always search this forum and google as most likely someone has had this issue before and a fix is posted.

    Now to answer your question which falls under #2

    The top one is apache serving a web page or file

    the 2nd one is a idle apache process waiting on a request

    and you forgot 3 not enough information in the post to tell the poster anything


    check your Logs /usr/local/apache/logs


    check to process running in top

    ps aux in ssh see what processes are running track it to the problem child there is always a trail

    may have a cgi or php script running a muck

    or worse yet a Spammer having a filed day on your server

    Cpanel/WHM is not a magic program that will keep you from crawling inside your server and managing it you have to open the hood sometime and get your hands dirty :)

    Thank you.

    These are definitely not normal idle apache processes. There are an abundance of them. And really, if you want me to go into detail on how I know this, I could do that too.

    The bottom line is this, I did not provide all the information I should have. But, as a reasonably experienced admin, this was not something I have ever experienced- at least in this magnitude. SO perhaps when responding to posts, you should not be such an a**hole, or you shouldnt even be a member- because this is a place where people come to get help- not smartass responses.

    If you would go into detail on how you know this then we might be able to provide useful responses. Like post the output from top , check the apache logs and see if you have a spammer accessing a script, post your httpd.conf settings for start servers and spare servers
