Server down

The goabase was offline for around 10 hours.
The reason is a script which starts automatically at 23:45h to save the logfilesDuring this process the apache webserver will be restarted but sometimes it doesn't restarts againIt's not easy to find the true cause for this effect but we search for a solutionThe first step is to set the script time on 12:00h which make it easier to restart the webserver manually.

If apache sometimes fails to restart, why not use a cronjob which checks if it's still alive every 5 minutes or so. And if it has died, the cronjob automatically tries to restart apache.

sounds interesting. my cronjob works this way:

- apache stop
- copy the logfiles
- creaty empty ones
- apache start

the last step fails sometimes... maybe I have to put it into a while loop until apache started again...
