Services going down when Apache starts


Hi all!

I've installed Apache 2.2.4, PHP 5.2.1 and MySQL 5.0.37 in a dedicated server that my client has located. His website is too accessed, and when I start Apache, many accesses occur, and in less than 5 minutes, all services go down. Apache, SSH, everything. When I call the Call Center, they say to me that the machine is operating, and it responds to the PING command from another station.

The unique way I have to access this server is using SSH, and the Call Center have no right to access this station. Just me with the root password. This way I know when the server goes down, because neither the SSH server responds.

Than I have to open a Help Desk asking for the Call Center to restart the machine manually. In this way, the SSH server goes up again. But the Apache Server is still in manual start. I don't want to put it automatically up to the time the server remains stable.

I looked up the Apache logs, and didn't find anything wrong. It doesn't tell nothing about the server going down.

Does anyone have any suggestion?

Thanks a lot!

Thales Medeiros.

From what you say, this problem does not apply just to apache. Check _all_ your logs....

Sincerely I don't know which logs I may look at. I don't know, for example, where I may find the SSH logs. And after that, which logs may be checked?

Thanks...

Depending on the configuration of your syslog, you may have them all funnelled into /var/log/messages or else you may have several logs in /var/log or subdirectories thereunder...

also see dmesg...

Just have a look for any irregularities/errors

I admit it is most difficult to troubleshoot this because you only have ssh access intil the problem occurs, and then you can no longer connect

Ideally you need physical access to look into this...
