public httpd daemon stops responding/process controls broken
I am running Litespeed Standard (Free) 2.04 on Solaris 2.9, on a 32-bit SunBlade 150. When I had gz compression turned on, the public server would never finish sending a page (as far as I can tell). It would send all the data but never close the connection.
With gz turned off, things seem to work fine, except that after a while (so many pages served? so many cgi processes? i dunno) the public server completely stops responding. The connections are not refused; just nothing happens.
The webadmin daemon has worked fine the whole time, except for a while when it didn't send the entire page for the tabbed server configs. I don't remember what setting was causing that.
Any clues? Right now I wrote a cron script that checks for a non-existant page and stops and starts the server if it doesn't get a 404 response. But that is pretty kludgy.
Also, the webadmin process controls don't work at all. Restart doesn't actually restart, and reload returns a blank page. This happens in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.
