This morning I started up my Koha test VM (Debian 8) and around 7:35
plack stopped working.  I believe this is the logrotate/zebra death issue
mentioned here:


I am running and verified that the patch shown in the above
bug is present in /usr/sbin/koha-stop-zebra.

In an email to this list a couple of months ago, Radek Siman suggested
disabling anacron as follows:

    1) open /etc/cron.d/anacron and add a # to turn off the line starting
    with 30 7 * * *  ....anacron...
    2) mv /usr/sbin/anacron /usr/sbin/anacron-temporarily-renamed

I'm going to do this until I find a better solution.
