I have this problem on two different machines:
Apache randomly will stop accepting connections. I am unable to telnet to port 80, or use a web browser to conenct to the machines. Even on the machine locally I am unable to connect either way.
The service will run for hours fine, then suddenly it stops accepting connections, and will start accepting them about 2-5 minutes later.
The apache monitor in the task bar shows green, and the service status is running.
In task manager, the apache processes are there like I normally see, and they are not using any excessive time or memory. Usually little or no time actually.
This has been happing for a long time, and I have not been able to track it down so far...
No obvious errors in the apache error log.
Nothing in the Windows event logs...
Running latest apache v2 (.50).
Two different computers have this problem. One is Windows 2000 Pro, other is Windows XP Pro.
The only common software between the two is Apache (though the 2000 pro machine is running an older version), and both are running WSFTP Server (latest version).
I have tried turning off the WSFTP Server service on one of them, and that didnt fix it.
Any things I can check, ideas, etc. ??
