    I'm running 4.1.12 on a cPanel server and there is a process by user nobody taking up all the CPU. If I switch to Apache the load is much lower. I'm not sure if this is due to the update or not but it did happen shortly after I updated to 4.1.12. We are running PHP 5.2.17:

    PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND

    switch to LSWS 4.1.11 and see any difference.

    Also, I ran apache on port 80 overnight and had LS running on port 2080.

    The server crashed this morning, looks like all the memory was eaten up.
    I checked the error log and there were pages and pages of this:

    I uninstalled 4.1.12, and reinstalled LSWS 4.1.11... Built the matching PHP Binary and So far so good.

    I don't see that process anywhere near the top and the Load is down to 1.30 (down from 4.5).

    I'll watch it today and update this thread
