|opapo||DrBacchus: do you have any ideas that could narrow down the problem?|
DrBacchus: is it possible that the server is sleeping during a redirect?
|DrBacchus||I don't know what "sleeping" would mean in that context.|
fajita: content negotiation
|fajita||DrBacchus: content negotiation is http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/content-negotiation.html or http://www.thescripts.com/serveradministration/webservers/apache/theapachewebserver/page2.html|
|opapo||I make a request for a new session (because of a redirect) and the server sleeps( or pauses or waits) then issues the new connection.|
|DrBacchus||Why would it do that?|
|opapo||I don't know but it appears to be doing that. The server is idle for awhile between the time it receives the request and serves a new connection|
|DrBacchus||How do you know this?|
|fajita||top is not enough|
|opapo||what else should I use?|
|DrBacchus||I'm not sure how top could tell you that.|
top doesn't update the output in realtime ayways.
|opapo||top updates data every .5 seconds if I want it to|
|DrBacchus||viz. not in realtime. But I'm still not sure how top would tell you anything at all in this situation.|
What specifically are you learning from top about what's happening?
Top can't tell you when it is serving the connection, or when it receives the connection.
|ViRUS||I'm hosting some domains and somehow the vhost of the main domain won't work. The default vhost catches also the requests that are ment for the main domain. :-/|
|lamp||main server goes away?|
|DrBacchus||There is no main domain. See what fajita said.|
Or will say in a moment, rather ...
main host goes away
|fajita||main host goes away is http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/name-based.html#using (See note about "Main host goes away")|
|lamp||aah, that was the factoid ;)|
|opapo||DrBacchus: Here's the situation. I hit submit on page 1. Top shows me that the httpd server with id X is using the processor. It stops and the server is idle. Then httpd server with id X + 1 uses the processor and page 2 comes up on my screen.|
|fholmes_laptop||Oh my goodness. Just gotta love ForceType|
So for some reason .htaccess files are not working. What is it Options AllowOverride?
|opapo||Is what I am saying clear?|
|fajita||htaccess files apply to the directory in which they are placed, and to all subdirectories thereof. or Only needed if you don't have access to the main server config. or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/htaccess.html or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/configuring.html#htaccess or|
..http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/howto/htaccess.html or if it doesn't work, check fajita's AllowOverride directives in httpd.conf or a possible performance hit or disabled with AllowOverride None
|fajita||AllowOverride is only allowed in httpd.conf. that's it's point, to dictate what can be put in .htaccess files or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/core.html#allowoverride or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/core.html#allowoverride (for 1.3)|
|DrBacchus||opapo: Well, as far as it goes, yeah. But unfortunately it doesn't point me to a particular likely solution.|
|Tuxguy||I've checked the logs, and I am getting permissions denied when accessing my home public_html directory. I've created a <Directory> tag for it in httpd.conf, restarted apache, checked permissions on the directory and it's parent directory, and they are good.|
