I'm assuming that you've got good reason to associate the issue with Zend, so I'd suggest your first check would be to ensure you're not running IonCube loader too.
  • Does apache restart with httpd startssl?
  • What's the output from apachectl configtest?
  • Anything in the log files?
  • Any effect by disabling Zend?

Thanks for the help!

--Does apache restart with httpd startssl? I can't really tell but the mesaages log says this on the reboot:

Dec 26 17:10:24 dwhs4 httpd: /etc/rc3.d/S85httpd start: httpd could not be started
Dec 26 17:10:24 dwhs4 httpd: /etc/rc3.d/S85httpd: line 202: 9444 File size limit exceeded$HTTPD -DSSL
Dec 26 17:10:24 dwhs4 rc: Starting httpd: failed

And the ssl log only says this over and over:

[26/Dec/2006 19:08:39 18406] [info] Server: Apache/1.3.37, Interface: mod_ssl/2.8.28, Library: OpenSSL/0.9.7a
[26/Dec/2006 19:08:39 18406] [info] Init: 1st startup round (still not detached)
[26/Dec/2006 19:08:39 18406] [info] Init: Initializing OpenSSL library

--What's the output from apachectl configtest? Syntax OK

[*]Anything in the log files? Amazingly no, even when apache crashes it doesn't list anything other then:

[Tue Dec 26 19:09:16 2006] [notice] Apache/1.3.37 (Unix) mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635.SR1.2 PHP-CGI/0.1b configured -- resuming normal operations
[Tue Dec 26 19:09:16 2006] [notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec)
[Tue Dec 26 19:09:16 2006] [notice] Accept mutex: sysvsem (Default: sysvsem)



Any effect by disabling Zend? i remove all references to zend in the php.ini file and restarted apache and it still failed. Also the php.ini file does not have any references to ioncube.

I keep thinking that once i do a reboot the php.ini file gets reverted back to another copy somehow. or maybe this is a bad module.

It's strange since I didn't change anything, it just happened out of the blue.

Ah - seems to make sense now...

Dec 26 17:10:24 dwhs4 httpd: /etc/rc3.d/S85httpd: line 202: 9444 File size limit exceeded$HTTPD -DSSL
This suggests that your log file is too big. Check /usr/local/apache/logs/ for any huge files ~2GB.

That would kinda explain why Apache seems to work for a short while before dying

File size limit exceeded(core dumped) $HTTPD -DSSL

1.Check log file size { /usr/local/apache/logs }

2. #cd /usr/local/apache/logs

3. # > {max size filename}-----> eg: error_log

4.enter.
5.restart apache.
