Thank you anyone who has time to look at this problem with me. That is the message in the apache error log file that I can't seem to fix. After googling some, I have set:
The same error messages keep happening though. They seem to be happening less, and at least the website is working again. Before I turned those settings off, the website wouldn't display an entire page, images were messed up and not loading. It's a virtual
CentOS 5.2 server running in ESX, with Apache 2.2.3, php 5.2.6, and mysql 5.0.45.
The IT guy where the server is, says he checked the logs for the cisco firewall and thinks their firewall is detecting a dos attack, whenever someone visits the website (?). It's the same firewall they've had for years, and we're talking about port 80 here.
Unrelated, but perhaps pertininent, what I did when they gave me this virtual
server to install the website on was just that, install the website. But when it was time to go live I'm like, oh dangit, we gotta 7GB system drive thats full!! So he gave me 100 more virtual GBs to install, which I parted up into /var/log /var/www /var/database and /usr. I hope that isn't going to screw anything up, shouldn't, it's been running fine for a couple weeks. All this started this morning.

Googling for the error message gives mostly the same results: check the apache FAQ. Change the above settings. I've been through the first few pages of google results and am going deeper. If anyone has ideas they are welcomed and appreciated!
