I have two physical servers, each has at least one vserver running a RedHat
7.3 distribution that acts as a webserver running the standard RedHat apache
RPMs.

About every other Sunday morning at 4:00 am apache dies with something like
this in the error log:
[Sun Oct 19 04:02:02 2003] [warn] child process 20010 did not exit, sending
another SIGHUP
[Sun Oct 19 04:02:02 2003] [warn] child process 20011 did not exit, sending
another SIGHUP

another SIGHUP

another SIGHUP

another SIGHUP
[Sun Oct 19 04:02:02 2003] [warn] child process 20016 did not exit, sending
another SIGHUP
[Sun Oct 19 04:02:02 2003] [warn] child process 20017 did not exit, sending
another SIGHUP
[Sun Oct 19 04:02:03 2003] [notice] SIGHUP received. Attempting to restart

The only thing I can think of is that the default log rotation is weekly.
Typically, the server load is very low on at 4:00 am, so I donít know why
apache would die at this time.

For some time Iíve been running one vserver *not as a vserver*, meaning that
instead of using a vserver kernel, I just created an alias on a network card
and then did ďchroot /vserver/testserverĒ and started apache manually. It
ran fine for months that way. Now, Iíve installed a vserver kernel and run
this as a true vserver. All of a sudden, with absolutely NO configuration
changes to the vserver what-so-ever it starts exhibiting this problem.

Here is the configuration for the vserver:
# Description: Test Server

if [ "" = "" ]; then
        PROFILE=prod
fi
case $PROFILE in
prod)
        IPROOT="eth1:192.168.0.10/255.255.255.0"
        IPROOTDEV="eth1"
        S_HOSTNAME=www.obfuscated
        ;;
backup)
        IPROOT=""
        #IPROOTMASK=
        #IPROOTBCAST=
        IPROOTDEV=eth0
        S_HOSTNAME=
        ;;
esac
ONBOOT=yes
S_DOMAINNAME=
S_NICE=
S_FLAGS="lock nproc"
ULIMIT="-H -u 1000"
S_CAPS=""

#!/bin/sh
case $1 in
pre-start)
        ;;
post-start)

        ;;
pre-stop)
        ;;
post-stop)
        ;;
*)
        echo $0 pre-start
        echo $0 pre-stop
        echo $0 post-start
        echo $0 post-stop
        ;;
esac

Any suggestions? I do have to say, I can re-start some of the vservers, but
there are a few that cannot be restarted unless itís absolutely last-resort.

Host OS is RedHat 8 and Kernel is:
Linux version 2.4.20ctx-17 (root_at_plastic.solucorp.qc.ca) (version gcc 3.2
20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)) #1 dim mar 30 12:32:24 EST 2003
