Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Fix Released
lighttpd (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lighttpd

Sometimes don't but sometimes lighttpd graceful shutdown at 6:25am and never wake up until you do /etc/init.d/lighttpd start.

This bug will make web server admin crazy bcoz you will never know if lighttpd will be still running tomorrow!

LOG: /var/log/lighttpd/error.log
2006-12-05 06:25:33: (server.c.1216) [note] graceful shutdown started
2006-12-05 06:31:25: (server.c.1126) NOTE: a request for /AdView/avi/MuchCard.avi timed out after writing 57920 bytes. We waited 360 second
s. If this a problem increase server.max-write-idle

2006-12-05 09:47:07: (log.c.75) server started

To fix the bug, edit /etc/logrotate.d/lighttpd:
replace the following lines:
           if [ -f /var/run/lighttpd.pid ]; then \
             if [ -x /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d ]; then \
                invoke-rc.d lighttpd reload > /dev/null; \
             else \
                /etc/init.d/lighttpd reload > /dev/null; \
             fi; \
        if [ -f /var/run/lighttpd.pid ]; then \
                kill -HUP $(</var/run/lighttpd.pid) ; \

The solution's by darix in #lighttpd on Freenode.

BTW, this bug's on both Debian and Ubuntu.

Nope, Soren.
There's No updates for lighttpd in Dapper 6.06.1 LTS. :-S

the package "lighttpd" is still a broken package, crash-able.
I don't know if there's any updates in Edgy. @_@
