Apache log entry- what is this?


I once again found something odd in my apache log files. I am just wondering if this is something to be concerned about. It looks as though apache was restarted but I have not restarted it for a week or so. Im wondering what would have made it restart. Here are the entries

error log:

Unhappy same problem here

I have the exact same problem....

.... he starts doing this for a while, then all of a sudden httpd dies.... and has to be restarted manually...

I really need to solve this problem, but have no idea how to do so... the error message tells me nothing!!

My log looks like this:

[Wed Sep 10 04:02:09 2003] [notice] Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) (Red-Hat/Linux) PHP/4.0.4pl1 mod_throttle/3.1.2 configured -- resuming normal operations

[Thu Sep 11 04:02:09 2003] [warn] child process 5774 did not exit, sending another SIGHUP
[Thu Sep 11 04:02:09 2003] [notice] SIGHUP received. Attempting to restart

This goes on until httpd dies....

Should I update mod_throttle?? SIGHUP, as far as I know, is just a kill -1, which of course cannot work if the process as such is not in existence. The questio is, why does he think it should exist in the first place? And why does Apache not simply say: ok, cannot kill, because does not exist, so ignore?
