has been causing people problems lately (see the archives for this list back
30-60 days), could it be biting you? The symptoms sound similar (apache
crashing the system).
I have checked the dmesg and I found this
pid 96448 (httpd), uid 398: exited on signal 6
So, I check the apache error log, and I found this warning repeat many times
[warn] child process xxxxx did not exit, sending another SIGHUP
After that, apache restart. Then another 5 minutes, the servers offline.
So, I think you may be right, since I just recompile PHP with lastest PHP
stable version (4.3.5). I will search the mail archive now.
Thank you for everyone help. You all are very knowledgeable.
