    Apache restarting?


    I saw in the logs the following messages:
    [Thu May 27 21:00:01 2010] [notice] Graceful restart requested, doing restart
    [Thu May 27 21:00:02 2010] [notice] Apache/2.0.63 (FreeBSD) configured -- resuming normal operations
    These massages occur in regular intervals every 5 minutes or so.

    Where do the restarts coming from?

    Thanks,

    If it happends regularly every five minutes, it sounds like a cron job.

    I had looked at the crontab -e superficially and nothing looked out of the ordinary. There was a script that in the last line it has:
    /usr/local/sbin/apachectl configtest && /usr/local/sbin/apachectl graceful

    I should have seen the restarting happening in set increments.

    Problem solved.

    THANKS!
