Default readonly file system - apache fails to start

(Debian Lenny) ISPConfig Slave

Today, apache2 has gone offline and is refusing to start complaining:
Restarting web server: apache2rm: cannot remove `/var/run/apache2/*ssl_scache*': Read-only file system
(30)Read-only file system: apache2: could not open error log file /var/log/apache2/error.log.
Unable to open logs
The server is a VM in a datacentre and this is the file system I'm mounted on, so i don't think i'm able to run fsck on it.

If I open fstab I first get prompted with:
Error detected while processing /usr/share/vim/vim71/debian.vim:
line   51:
E483: Cannot get temp file name
Press ENTER or type command to continue
and then see:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0

/var/log/ispconfig/httpd/ /var/www/clients/client19/web137/log    none    bind,nobootwait    0 0
I've never seen the last two entries in there, so i'm very confused.

I'd really appreciate some help to get the server back on line again please. I'm not really sure where to start.
