bah, so when i try to install the frontpage server extensions, everything goes successful until the end where i get these error messages..
Quote:
Upgrading FrontPage Webs...
cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/sbin/httpd': Text file busy

so i tried stopping the service with /usr/local/sbin/httpd stop
i then tried installing the server extensions again but to no avail, i get the same error message. so i'm thinking that for one reason or another, the service is not stopping. when checking all the locations httpd exists, there are 3:
/usr/local/sbin/httpd
/home/temp/local/sbin/httpd
/usr/student/usr/local/sbin/httpd
so i tried stopping all 3 services, and 2 were successful. the one in home/temp gave an error,
Quote:
# /home/temp/local/sbin/httpd stop
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libexpat.so.4" not found, required by "httpd"
i dont understand the error, but i dont think its important. is there any way i can definitely stop the httpd service? i'm telnet'd in so when i do a ps, it just shows the services i'm using through telnet.
please help/suggest :-D
thanks guys

I don't understand what you are asking; those are the binaries, the running processes if any would be in a .pid file.

If it's in your home dir, I doubt it's useful, but I am not sure what it would be doing in your home dir in the first place.

Also, never try to compile or run a binary update (shudder) on a running process -- bad juju.
