Hello all,

This morning, while trying to access the server, I saw an Internal Server Error while accessing via web. So I tried to login via SSH, but the server was not responding. I then restarted the server via APC, but the server didn't come back online. I started the server in rescue mode, managed to login via SSH, but now I can't mount the hard drive, so I can't access the usual file system.

The only thing I know is that the logwatch log for 4:59 AM has this:
WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
ata1.00: tag 0 cmd 0xca Emask 0x14 stat 0x40 err 0x0 (ATA bus error) ...: 1 Time(s)
Anyone can help me ? Any help will be very appretiated.

Have you recently changed/updated the kernel on the box?

The first thing I would try is modify your /etc/grub.conf and see if you can boot into one of the older kernels.
