I think these emails are sent based on COnfig server firewall setting located in /etc/csf/csf.conf

"
# This User Process Tracking option sends an alert if any linux user process
# exceeds the time usage set (seconds). To ignore specific processes or users
# use csf.pignore
#
# Set to 0 to disable this feature
PT_USERTIME = "1800"
"

and settings around it.

Question is why that PHP process is running 23 hours?
Im having just normal websites.

Try this search query in your favorite search tool:

Executable: /usr/sbin/httpd site:forum.configserver.com

There really is no way for anyone on these forums to guess at whats going on with your server from your post, or that email. If you decide to search a little as suggested, you'll find plenty of comments that might indeed be helpful and point you in the right direction at least, so you can investigate the matter personally, armed with more Info. :)

HTH!
