Debian: Apache2 crashes on logchange

  • I experience the issue that my apache2 always crashes on logchange, I'm pretty sure that I've already had a solution for that problem on an earlier installation but sadly I can't figure it out anymore.
    As far as I can remember it was something about apache2.conf and a line which forces apache2 to reload the modules or keeping it from reloading them.
    Sadly I can't figrue it out anymore, someone knows what I can do about this?

    That's doin the magic, thx a lot!
