Hello, > What is the output of uname -a? FreeBSD cp.laws.ms 4.8-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE #0: Fri May 23 11:13:23 CDT 2003
> Are you patched to the latest security release for 4.8 (p.16 or so)? PHP has been causing people problems lately (see the archives for this list back 30-60 days), could it be biting you? The symptoms sound similar (apache crashing the system). I have checked the dmesg and I found this pid 96448 (httpd), uid 398: exited on signal 6 So, I check the apache error log, and I found this warning repeat many times [warn] child process xxxxx did not exit, sending another SIGHUP After that, apache restart. Then another 5 minutes, the servers offline. So, I think you may be right, since I just recompile PHP with lastest PHP stable version (4.3.5). I will search the mail archive now. Thank you for everyone help. You all are very knowledgeable.
