Failed Killsby aijin (Monk)
|on Oct 19, 2001 at 19:12 UTC||Need Help??|
aijin has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm writing cgi's to interface with a server I recently wrote. Everything was going just spiffy until I tried to add the functionality to kill a forked process.
kill 9, $pid doesn't work. I checked $pid and it's the correct PID.
I checked the permissions. Both the cgi and the server are owned by root.
The forked processes aren't stuck on an I/O call, and I can kill them just fine from the shell. I can't kill them from the cgi.
Suggestions are most appreciated!
