    I'll get e-mails like this on occasion:

    httpd failed @ Mon Dec 17 05:36:22 2007. A restart was attempted automagically.

    Other times, I'll just be watching TOP and all the apache processes (which are usually at the beginning of the list along with mysqld) will disappear for 2 or 3 minutes and then finally come back up on their own with no restart. During that time my websites become unbrowsable.

    I've checked /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log and I never see anything out of the ordinary. Where else should I be looking to try and find the cause?

    /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log should be the file you get your information from.

    You might try:
    /var/log/messages (checkservd, the one restarting Apache, stores his information in here if I'm right, but you might want to search for a seperated checkservd log)
