Hello :)

The thread title suggests that Apache stops every four hours. Could you post the output from the Apache error log when Apache is stopped? Are you having to manually start it back up?

Thank you.

Could you please check the number of connections using the command below when apache stops ? It will help to investigate further.

netstat -nap | grep :80 | wc -l
If the number of connections are high, I will recommend you to use prefork & increase Max Clients and Server Limits.
