max_execution_time ignored, multiple Apache processes spawned

P: n/a
I have an app that is going berzerk on its own; without any code or
environmental changes of any kind, for some bizarre reason it will
randomly just hang, spawn multiple Apache processes and completely
ignore max_execution_time, literally running infinitely.

Using PHP 5.2.0, Apache 1.3 and Win XP

Is this normal "bizarre" behavior that can occur within this setup; if
so, what workarounds have you found to combat this, other than the
obvious (try to debug and fix code)?

Thanx
Phil

Hi Phil,

No good. :-(
A few things to check:
1) Apache spawning multiple processes is normal. Do you see a *lot of extra*
processes coming into existance after calling some page?

2) What does a simple script containing only phpinfo(); produce?
Does that hang too?

3) Check your Apache logfiles. Look for errors.

Hi Phil,

No good. :-(
I can get it to work normally only when I do a computer hard reboot.
Really not good :(

Yes, like several dozen at once

No errors generated whatsoever. No warnings, no notices, nothing.
