Followup on the problem: Late yesterday, Apache stopped taking
requests. Looks like the problem is still unresolved.

Let me know what I can do to try to get you some more useful
information to debug the problem (this will be my first serious
attempt to debug under Linux, so please be patient).


For the record, I am noticing the following:

-- Server processes seem to remain in the status display with
a status of "W"; a netstat reveals that these connections are
stuck in CLOSE state (based on matching destinations)

-- Multiple server lines in the status page have the same PID

-- After a few days, Apache no longer accepts connections and
must be shut down and restarted; the wierd part of that has
been that I shut the server down each night to cycle/archive
the logs (would seem to indicate an intermitant problem)
