Sadly this isn't enough information to determine the source of the issue. If you could please log into your server and paste the output of "ps auxw | grep syslog" it should give use a better idea of what is going on.

Also, what distribution is your server running?

Go on, have a guess
Check /var/log/messages for any errors relating to syslog. /var/log/chkservd.log might also shed some light into why it thought it was stopped. Also, make sure you're not running anything that might kill it off (PRM comes to mind).

Not sure how to check all that

Check /var/log/messages for any errors relating to syslog. /var/log/chkservd.log might also shed some light into why it thought it was stopped. Also, make sure you're not running anything that might kill it off (PRM comes to mind).
How do I do this?
