About once a week or so Apache just stops listening and we have to restart <br>
the Apache service. I had found in one of my php scripts a problem with <br>
some database calls. The result set was being populated over and over <br>
again in a loop that may occur several thousand times. I added an unset to <br>
the bottom of the loop and we went from having this problem on almost a <br>
daily basis to about once a week. I just went through my php code with a <br>
fine tooth comb and found one other spot that this may be occuring and <br>
changed it. I am hoping this will fix our problem. Has anyone seen this <br>
problem before? Am I on the right track? Also, I am considering setting <br>
up a scheduled event to restart Apache at 2AM every morning. Do you think <br>
this might help? <br>

listening&#8217;, and do you mean &#8216;stops responding&#8217;? If you note
problems with
database calls, then that may be where all of your problems lie. Perhaps it is
timing out threads, consuming all of them, and denying requests as a result. Are
you sure your code is exiting properly? I would continue checking for that kind
of thing. You do not mention CPU use either. When apache does not respond, does
load go up on the cpu(s)?<o:p></o:p></span></font></i></b></p>
