    This is happening on only one domain on the whole server.

    I was notified by some one that their site was down, they kept getting a time out error. So i restarted apache and named, now they get an Internal Server Error. After a couple of seconds though, after a page refresh, the timeout error starts up again.

    the server is on RHEL 3

    Please help :S

    thanks

    I am not sure what could be the issue without having a look at it. But there are certain things that you can check like the httpd.conf, the permission of the public_html files. Also when you are getting the timeout error, is the site pinging from outside and inside the server, then can you access the site using lynx from inside the server. By checking all these you will have some mre idea about the issue which will help you in trouble shooting.

    Thanks for the reply...

    i am able to ping the site from both internally and externally.

    not too sure about the permissions, but i cannot visit the site using lynx.

    i get the timeout problem.

    there is nothing in the error log either

    Please have a check on the permissions and ownership and also please see if there is some .htaccess rules there. Please rename that and see.

    Also it is worth if you try

    /scripts/enablefileprotect

    Try checking the httpd error_log and suexec logs to see what output you have there. Usually that will clue you in to what's happening.
