    I am having a very big problem with my server.
    Something is happening causing the server to get overloaded (Maybe using all resources) and its causing services to crash.

    Apache, exim etc. all crash and I can't restart them, SSH just hangs after I enter the password for the login.

    After a reboot, the server works ok, but then the same thing happens 10-15 mins later.

    I can't reboot through WHM and SSH is out so I need to get a reboot request at the DC which is taking too long.

    Anyone know what could be causing this?
    Really need to get it fixed soon and 3 people have already looked but aren't sure what is wrong

    Could be several things.

    First, check your logfiles and see what they are reporting right before the crash.

    Second, after a reboot, ssh to your box and run top. See if any processes or scripts are overloading your system.

    As well, there could be hardware problems if nothing is detectable by either of the above.

    Heck, you may also be under some sort of ddos attack, but hopefully, your DC has already ruled that option out!
