Just sharing a recurring crash problem...

I had a user who installed a CGI script which dumped thousands of line of errors in the error_log file per second.

It increased the error_log at a drastic rate !

At a certain point, Apache would fail, without sending an e-mail, and without restarting automatically ( without me deleting the error_log.

I would restart the service, and it would work, until the next time the CGI would dump a shitload of stuff.
