I posted this in the programming forum as well but that doesn't seem to be a very busy forum which is why I repost it here:
I have zero experience with php as a CGI module but since Dreamhost is basically forcing me to use it I have a question:
I have a growing amount of php5.cgi processes eating to much resources. I can issue a killall php5.cgi to get rid of them but after that they just come back!
Is there any way of seeing what these processes are actually doing? e.g: which php script they're running?
I have no clue why this happens. I never had any problems with php running as an apache module.
Advice is appreciated!
