    Do you still receive above error while stop/start apache manually from command prompt?

    There is more possibilities here than could be listed with the little information at hand.

    To properly diagnose your issue, we'd really need to know:

    1. The amount of memory and traffic on your server
    2. The details of your Apache configuration

    Per the former, if your server has insufficient resources that would definitely cause a crash condition.

    Per the latter, an incorrect configuration, over allocation of resources, or even mis-configured or mismatched modules could also contribute to the server crashing as well.

    If I saw your server's configuration, I could probably tell you in a heartbeat what is wrong but with the little bit of
    log information you posted above, I really couldn't say exactly what is happening here.

    To see the usage of apache processes run following command from SSH:

    top -c

    See which process is consuming more Apache resource.

    So how do i know that graceful restarts in Apache are due to log file rotation ?! what if it's not because of log file rotation ?
