Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI receives SIGTERM
Date Wed, 18 Oct 2006 19:12:10 GMT
We will just have to agree to disagree. Over many releases of Apache I've
never seen a looping or hung CGI sent a SIGTERM. I've even asked in this
group how that could be achieved, only to be told that it cannot be done,
using facilities within apache alone.
