Log rotation and apache restarting failure (Script Automation)

There is an issue where the logging of apache suddenly stops.

After researching, I found out that the log rotation stop due to a problem that happen in httpd.conf, generally when a website is terminated, causing an inconsitency.

This inconsistency can be fixed automatically by calling the script :

/scripts/rebuildhttpconf

So I propose a solution, that might fix the 'graceful restart' apache does from time to time, and preventing problems like this.

Go to : /etc/rc.d/init.d

Change :

start|stop|restart|graceful|graceful-stop)

$HTTPD -k $ARGV -DSSL

ERROR=$?

;;

To :

start|stop|restart|graceful|graceful-stop)

/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf

$HTTPD -k $ARGV -DSSL

ERROR=$?

;;

This will fix the problem and will solve trouble with many of your customers !

This sounds more like a bug report than a feature request. What was the inconsistency you encountered? What was the root cause of the inconsistency?

Hello,


The root cause of this problem, is generally when a site is 'terminated', it seems the apache config is not rebuilt, and once a graceful restart happens, for example 'log rotation', the apache stop working OR just stop logging ! (I also have this same problem!)
