    We have a weird problem on one of the server: httpd.conf goes read-only - in results, Apache stops and only remedy would be restarting whole server.

    I have rebuilt the whole Apache, logs do not say anything else except that Apache cannot be restarted.

    Can you advice?

    httpd.conf being read only shouldn't upset Apache - it only needs to read the file, not write to it.

    Is it *only* this file that goes readonly, or the entirefilesystem - if it is the latter then you probably have something curropting the file system (perhaps the drive is dying?) and the kernel is seeing that and remount the filesystem read-only in an effort to protect against further damage until you run fsck (either manually or during the boot process)?

    What is your partition structure like? If you have *everything* in one partition, and that one is going read-only, then everything goes read-only at once including apache logs and /tmp both of which may well upset apache (and a number of other things).
