Well it happens very frequently. It's very probably related to log
rotation. /etc/logrotate.d/apache2 rotates 2 serie of files and after each
rotation it does restart apache2. For apache 1.x the postrotate script is
a simple reload (and not a restart), we should probably also use that if
it's enough. But that's really a bug in apache2:


For the apache maintainers and the bug log: we are bitten by this bug on
an almost daily basis. I don't know if costa's HTTPD configuration has
something specific which triggers the bug regularly but it's very annoying
and it should really be fixed.

apache1 postrotate script seems much nicer (use of invoke-rc.d and use
reload instead of restart).

Why don't use the same script for apache2? Would using reload create

In the mean time, I'll use reload on costa and see how it works.
