    Every night or two, I get an email roughly like so:

    Code:
    SUBJ:httpd on myserver.net status: failed
    MSG:httpd failed @ Tue Mar  6 01:46:17 2012. A restart was attempted automagically.
    
    Service Check Method:  [socket connect]
    
    Reason: Timeout while trying to connect to service: Died at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TailWatch/ChkServd.pm line 561.
    
    
    Number of Restart Attempts: 1 
    Apache comes backup just fine, but I'd like to figure out why it's dying in the first place.

    Looking at the Apache Error logs, I'm seeing this around that time:

    Code:
    [Tue Mar 06 01:47:07 2012] [warn] child process 25013 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM
    [snip some RSA common name certificate stuff]

    Any ideas or other places I should look?

    Oooh...piped logs. Must have missed that in the change logs. I'll give that a whirl and see if that helps. That was the only thing I didn't already have checked (as my logs are all rotating properly, so nothing's getting too large).

    Thanks!
