opensourcer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi, how do i print when apache starts and stop or restarts through mod_perl or using handlers. i have tried by catching the SIG but couldn't get the success. i have seend the PerlChildInit/Exit handler, but they are for child process, here im looking for the apache. I'll be very thankfull if some 1 could guice me.

    Are you trying to detect start/stop/restart status via mod_perl executed by the same server you're starting/stoping/restarting? I don't think you can detect stoping the server via application that same server enables to run :-)
    You can read the apache log files, though.

    The Apache (re)starting can be very easy - put the
    <Perl> #your code </Perl>
    section into your httpd.conf, or use PerlPostConfigHandler. The Apache stopping - I have no clear idea.

    you could see the details in the log file, then why do you want to print it separately ?
