Debugging apache article

If you subscribe to SysAdmin magazine, you might be interested in my article Debugging Apache Web Server Problems, which is available in the July issue. Here is the list of topics I covered in the article:

– Using single process mode to isolate problems.

– Using httpd flags to debug configuration errors.

– Debugging CGI script execution problems with ScriptLog.

– Using mod_backtrace to determine why a process crashed.

– Dumping HTTP requests and responses with mod_dumpio.

– Using ptools and gdb to see why an httpd process hung.

– Enabling maintainer mode to simplify debugging.

– Using the source code to locate problems.

I have been a long time subscriber to SysAdmin, and it’s one of the few magazines I read each month from cover to cover. If you happen to read my article, I would love to hear your thoughts (good or bad).
