    One of my machines has alot of <defunct> httpd process

    How can I find out where the defunct processes are coming from so I can know which script/domain is causing them?

    Thanks!

    Monitor your apache access log and check that any scripts on your accounts are patched and upto date with the latest security fixes.

    Defunct processes are processes that have become corrupted in such a way the no long can communicate with their parent or child process.
