Hi all -
I've been struggling to keep a Subversion server (1.6.16) running via Apache (2.2.17).
Every so often, it seems that the svn server crashes. Initially, we upgraded to SVN 1.6.12 and things would crash regularly every week. Restarting brought SVN back up, but now after upgrading to 1.6.16, it crashes almost every 2 weeks on the dot. Restarting before the server can crash prevents it, but I feel like we shouldn't have to do that. Prior to upgrading, we were running 1.4.X and that ran without restarting period.
Here's what I find in the log when it does crash:
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
The lines above this have no pattern (there's no one operation that seems to be bringing down the server.
I've tried all the tuning options:
(even if "MaxMemFree" isn't a documented configuration option for the mpm_winnt_module)
...to no avail.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - even if it is just to acknowledge the fact that others are facing the same exact issue. All googling around provided was a series of threads that start with the same issue but just trail off with no solution.
