    Sorry, Till. I don't know how to do that.

    I'm looking at the file and this is what it shows me...
    What shall I check it with against?

    mysql -u ispconfig -p dbispconfig

    and then enter the passphrase that is listed in the line "pass" of the file. If you are able to login, then this part is fine and you must have a different problem. In this case please post the exact error messages that you get and where you got them.

    I could log in properly to the database.
    Restarting apache seems to help with the openfiles problem.
    I did lsof before I restarted apache and after restart.

    This is where it seem to go wrong...
    After this it seems to repeat same FIFO stuff over and over...

    In apache error log I see this...

    Ok, so the Date/Format perl module is missing on your server which is required by vloggaer and this causes apache to fail.

    on debian and ubuntu the package is named libtimedate-perl and can be installed with:

    apt-get install libtimedate-perl

    for othert distributions this package is available too. Search for date "date::format" with yast or yum if you run a different linux distribution.

    Run this command:

    yum install webalizer perl-DateTime-Format-HTTP perl-DateTime-Format-Builder

    To install all nescessary modules for the ispconfig statistics. Thats step 19 of the ispconfig installation instructions, so please follow the install guides closely to avoid such problems.

    RESOLVED - Debian Squeeze 6, ISPconfig, Vlogger Perl errors, Apache failing

    Thank you Till for your solution above and to you and Falko for all of your work on the ISPconfig project and documentation!

    We were able to resolve this problem by installing the Perl Date::Format module on Debian Squeeze.

    apt-get install libtimedate-perl

    I recently built multiple VPS running a new/clean install of Debian Squeeze 6.0 and ISPconfig My builds did not include the package. The installation guide I followed did not suggest installing the package since it likely assumed the package was already installed.

    The apache2 processes would consume all available VPS memory and the VPS host would begin killing all new processes in the affected VPS. Restarting the apache2 service in the affected VPS would temporarily resolve the problem. The cause of the problem was obvious once we checked into it. The apache error log (/var/log/apache2/error.log) in the affected VPS contained hundreds of thousands of errors related to vlogger and the missing Perl module.
