"503 Service Temporarily Unavailable" after +/-2 days running tomcat

Hello All.

I have a problem with tomcat/apache and I don't really know if the problem is originated by tomcat or by the user (I have only one user running a jsp site).

From 2 to 2 days (more or less) tomcat crashes and when we try to access to my customer site we see the message:

Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Apache/1.3.34 Server at www.websitehere.com Port 80
Then I need to run /scripts/restartsrv_tomcat and service httpd restart in order to bring tomcat and jsp site online.

This is very bad for me and my customer as you can understand.

Do you know how to solv this issue or where can I find a tut to do it?

Any help appreciated.


I forgot: every other sites allways running well, even when tomcat crashes showing that mesage (just for jsp site)
