I’ve spent most of today trying to restart Apache. I’ve been using the webserver for weeks, if not months, and last night I forgot to log out. I was logged into both apache (using apache50 start ~/workspace/xxxxx) and mysql (using mysql50 start). Both are part of the Harvard CS50 course.
At present, all efforts to sudo, killall, restart, reload, etc. have timed out or failed. My log files seem very full (I stopped scrolling down at line 53000) and grep doesn’t return anything for today’s date (“mar 11”) from any .log file. WTF.
I have screen shots if they would help, but I’m a bit alarmed that all this effort hasn’t fixed a problem that just happened because I forgot to log out for eight hours.
