Subject: [users@httpd] Apache dying every 5 min.


Since yesterday, our servers apache (cpanel control panel ) is constantly
failing. I upgraded cpanel, rebuilt apache, tried all sorts of things, but i
cant get rid of this issue. I can't find the source.

I contacted our Cpanel support and here is the reply:

"I looked into this quite extensively and can not find out why it's
crashing. It's not writing any error to any log which says  it's not a
configuration issue. I even sniffed the requests on the network to apache
but all the traffic was normal. I could n't find a trojan/backdoor which
would cause something weird like this either. My next step would be to
replace the ram, bad memor
y could cause apache to exit out once it "hits" a certain "frame" of memory.
See if your datacenter can replace the ram with known good ram and run a
memory tester on the ram currently in the server."

We replaced RAM with new ones and did RAM testing.

Here is the reply from cpanel support guys:

"I rebuilt apache however it's still dying out. If you can, reboot the
server and turn off any ACPI/APM support in the bios. That is about the only
thing I can think of left if the hardware is ok and the binary is ok. If the
server is ever "unbusy" enough you might want to run badblocks checker to
see if it's possible. there is a bad spot on the harddrive where apache
happens to be, however that is longshot. Let's turn off the power saving
features in the bios and see if that helps."

We turned off ACPI/APM in BIOS but still apache dying.We also did badblocks
checker on drive and No bad blocks found, did a full check.

This is the serious problem i have ever seen on apache. There is no clues to
find out problem. Simply dying.

Can someone guide us ?  please..
