Updated lighttpd control script to kill FCGIs (See related posts)



case "$1" in
      # Starts the lighttpd deamon
      echo "Starting Lighttpd"
      /usr/local/sbin/lighttpd -f $LIGHTTPD_CONF
      # stops the daemon bt cat'ing the pidfile
      echo "Stopping Lighttpd"
      kill -9 `cat $PIDFILE`
      # kills the dispatch.fcgis
      ps axww | grep dispatch | egrep -v 'grep' | awk '{ print $1 }' | xargs kill -9 
        ## Stop the service regardless of whether it was
        ## running or not, start it again.
        echo "Restarting Lighttpd"
        $0 stop
        $0 start
      # reloads the config file by sending HUP
      echo "Reloading config"
      kill -HUP `cat $PIDFILE`
            echo "Usage: lighttpdctl (start|stop|restart|reload)"
            exit 1

Great! Thanks for the script! (You actually motivated me to finally sit down and learn some shell scripting.)

I'd been using the script without a hitch for some time now but then all of a sudden it won't work if I happen to have an sftp session open (I use WinSCP). The error that appears is "Cannot fork: Resource temporarily unavailable." Is there a way around this?
