Blank Pages


The problem I'm having is randomly users are receiving blank pages. It happened to me once, I viewed source and there was nothing (Firefox).

I receive emails from LogWatch, and in it is: "Dropped 39942 packets on interface eth1". I've noticed that the IPs of the people getting blank pages are usually in there (the ones that aren't could have been another day then the log I was viewing).

I am running REDHAT Enterprise 4 with WHM/cPanel. I am running Apache 1.3, PHP5, MySQL5. All up to date.

Server is dual 2.6 dual core processors, 2GB ram, and 100Mbps link.

top - 15:53:37 up 1 day, 20:37, 1 user, load average: 0.51, 0.39, 0.40
Tasks: 152 total, 1 running, 151 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 5.0% us, 1.3% sy, 0.0% ni, 93.3% id, 0.4% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 2074636k total, 1762124k used, 312512k free, 195420k buffers
Swap: 2040212k total, 144k used, 2040068k free, 1082220k cached

I've been doing a ton of searching but I can't figure out what the problem is or a solution to it. Any help in figuring it out would be greatly appreciated.

Check dmesg and see if there is complains from your kernel. This sounds like a kernel or driver problem.

Reviewing the logs I believe the firewall was thinking the users were a P2P program and blocking them. All the drops on port 80 were logged as *** P2P ***. Viewing the source of the firewall script, it was definitely coming from there. WHY it was blocking it from port 80 I don't know, as that wasn't on the list of ports to block..
