Kill Zombie Process?

On Friday, I’d been using phpMyAdmin while DH was rolling out some MySQL updates. As a result, it spawned 108 zombie processes that have persisted for 2 days now. I’ve tried using TOP to kill the processes, but it doesn’t have any effect. When I try to kill the process from the command line, I receive “Operation not permitted”.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what I can try next?

Thanks in advance.

Do those zombie processes under your username? I doubt not.

If those processes belong to root, I’ll suggest you to contact DH support.
