I've been looking around in the archives trying to find an answer to
this, but can't seem to find anything. If it's a FAQ, please excuse me.
In essence, my slashboxes have gone crazy. After I reboot my box,
things are fine. All the information in the slashboxes is fine and
current. As time goes on, this is not necessarily the case. I'll
connect to my site and find that the slashboxes are from the previous
day. If I hit reload, they will change to whatever was current at some
random time. Sometimes they come up current. Sometimes from five hours
ago. There seems to be no pattern.
I do not think this is a case of web browser cache. I've tried a number
of different browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, Opera, Konqueror, lynx and IE)
and find the same behavior in all, even when I've never actually run
that browser before (i.e. very first time I brought up Konqueror to
connect to my site, it showed slashboxes from three days ago.)
I don't have any idea of why this is the case. I am guessing that it
depends upon the apache thread that answers the connection, but that is
just a guess. Also, it only affects the slashboxes. The rest of the
content is completely current. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone
with greater experience with the code base could point me in the right
direction. This has always been it's behavior since I re-installed
everything from scratch a month ago. (I had a hard drive crash that ate
my 2.0 version of the site. No backup. Doh!)
Slash 2.2.1 upgraded from 2.2.0.

Yes, this is the different httpd child processes. They get restarted
after x connections and when restarted fetch some new content from the
DB, files etc.
If it takes five hours or more for old content to disappear you should
really think about reducing the number of apache childs and maybe
restart them sooner.
