A shell script to check on Apache
Authored by: bluehz on Jan 03, '05 12:17:20PM

I am not sure that the non-server version of Mac OS X includes any sort of "watchdog" (aka daemon) tools for initiating Apache. I may be completely mistaken on this though.

I know on my Linux box that has mission critical Apache running - I use daemontools as a system wide daemon controller for processes (such as Apache) that do not have their own daemon mode. Daemontools will compile on Mac OS X just fine, although I don't have much experience using it in Mac OS X environment.
