    Anyone plesae. I'm noticing they go away but only after 300seconds. And they seem to consume CPU/memory. I thought I read somewhere that it could be a DDOS attack but I not cannot find the article. Someone please help me. :(

    The multiple '..reading..' requests showing in apache status is evidence of a DoS attack. Use the command below to get a list of ip's connected to apache and the amount of connections each IP has. This will show you which ip's are attacking the server if any.

    Code:
    netstat -plan|grep :80|awk {'print $5'}|cut -d: -f 1|sort|uniq -c|sort -n
