Well yes, this is precisely the reason why we use a SIGHUP (equivalent to "apachectl restart") instead of a SIGUSR1 (apachectl graceful). We don't really care about a few broken client connections since the logs are rotated at a quiet time. Of course, YMMV. regards, Ruben _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
