Apache 2 on FreeBSD is bad news

Sign in to follow this  


Word of advice: Don't run Apache 2.x on FreeBSD 4/5, there is no luck. I've tried Apache 2.x with FreeBSD 4.6,4.10 without success and I just tried running Apache 2 on FreeBSD 5.2.1 for a few days without any good results.

If you're lucky, the child processes are going to core dump every 10 seconds and start up again to dump again later.

If you're one of the unlucky ones, as I am, the Apache processes are going to take (cumulatively) 100% of your CPU time.

Trust me on this one. If you are thinking of running Apache on FreeBSD or thinking of upgrading, don't bother. Give it a year or so to develop and stick to the 1.x branch.
