    Hello,

    Im trying to find this answer in the past 3 days, nad dont find the solution.

    Since day 22 of this month, when for exemple I make an new account on WHM, the WHM send's the signal to restart httpd, but it fails to restart, and I have to go to WHM and clique to restart the httpd service manually.

    The apache error logs is this:

    [Wed Jan 25 12:04:54 2006] [notice] SIGUSR1 received. Doing graceful restart
    [Wed Jan 25 12:06:41 2006] [notice] mod_security/1.9.1 configured

    [Wed Jan 25 12:06:46 2006] [notice] Accept mutex: sysvsem (Default: sysvsem)

    Go on, have a guess
    Do you have a very busy apache server? Sometimes it can take quite some time for child processes to die after a restart is requested of apache if it is very busy which can leave it in a stopped state. If that is the case, I don't know if there's any workaround.

    I think not, because this problem just apears 3 days ago :(

    Is there anyway to make any modifications to httpd service not restart automatic?

    Like a perl script, php script etc., that stops the signal to restart if there is any modifications on httpd.conf ?

    Because for now until I dont know the fix to the problem its beter to me do my self at WHM a restart on httpd service, because the doentime im getting :(

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Solution

    I have found the problem.

    Since I have upgraded to PHP 4.4.2, I was forced to upgrade Zend, and because I used on PHP 3.1.0 the Zend and eAccelerator togeter to optimise the server, I was forced to upgrade also de eAccelerator.

    So I have make lots and lots of research, and nothing fixed my problem, because when adding, or rmoving an account on WHM the httpd restart's, but cant kill all jobs i gess, and some how eAccelerator was involved on the process.

    I have go to php.ini comented the eAccelerator module. restart httpd , have run some testes, and evrything is O now :)

    Now I have a dilema, can some one advise me to install a php, html optimiser, like eAccelerator, that runs with PHP 4.4.2, and Zend ?
