    I keep getting emails all day that say:

    "apache failed @ Mon Sep 27 15:52:27 2004. A restart was attempted automagicly."

    These emails come to me about every 5 to 7 minutes. I checked under "Service Status" from my WHM panel and it says:

    apache (1.3.31 (Unix)) failed (red light)


    I tried doing a reboot with no success and I tried doing an "Update Apache" and that didn't work either. Could someone please help me and let me know what is wrong and what I can do! I have 126 websites on my server that are down because of this!

    If restarting in shell doesn't work, see if there is a problem with the httpd.conf file with the command:
    /usr/sbin/httpd configtest

    Can both of you please explain it to me in better detail? I have no idea how to do what you are talking about! Just talk to me like I'm stupid please...hahaha.

    I'm logged in as root and it is my own dedicated server, I went down to "Restart services" and clicked on "HTTP/Web Server (Apache)" and it gave me this error

    "httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin."

    Like I said, can someone please explain to me what to do in simple terms...I am very new at this!

    Apache has been going down every 10 minutes here as well.
    Restarting it manually does not stop it from going down and restarting like clockwork.

    I know a long time ago there was an issue about something like this, it couldn't possibly be back, could it? The FT_SETSIZE or whatever..

    Did you try what squirrel said ? The configtest will tell you if there is an error with your httpd.conf atleast.
