    we use FreeBSD 6.3 and we buy an Enterprise Lic. we install it but we have lot of problems now.

    First one of oursites is attacked with http get flood and create lot of php request .. the load average looks fine but from the nothing in 5 or 10 minutes all the sites stop responding.... we watch the dmesg and we saw a lshttpd process stop working with signal 11, from 5 process lshttpd now only 4 are running but all the sites are down..

    we must restart all the the time the lshttpd service with the lswsctrl all the time.

    we use Cpanel 11 here .. have you any fix?
    is a problem with the configuration of lshttp ?
    is a problem with freebsd and litespeed?
    the ddos attack is killing the lshttpd proccess with signal 11?

    please we need some help here

    Anything in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log ?
    LSWS should start a new child process immediately when one child process crashed.

    is freebsd core dump enabled?

    If enabled, can you please locate the core file, check the core file with GDB.

    For compile PHP with GD, maybe there are multiple GD Lib installed, maybe the wrong one was used. Likely cPanel installed its own Lib, like with libcurl.
    You can check the config.log under /home/easyapache/ls.src/php.../ directory.

    the core dump is enabled...

    respect the curl i fix it using another libcurl path as you say.

    i use /usr/local/lib/ instead /opt/curlssl

    and the compilation works fine.

    respect the crash..

    i say the .core of the lishttpd but i dont know how to start with that .core .have a lot of garbage..
