    If you're using VPS based on OpenVZ container, think about changing CentOS to Debian 5.0.1. I had a lot of problems with CentOs on OpenVZ and the solution was to change the distribution ;-(

    I'm not on a vps. Changing the os is not really an option for me.

    Thanks anyway.

    Please check if the main CentOS repo is enabled in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.

    I think its enabled. Here is the file

    Code:
    # CentOS-Base.repo
    #
    # This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by Lance Davis for CentOS.
    # The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
    # update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
    # geographically close to the client.  You should use this for CentOS updates
    # unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
    #
    # If the #mirrorlist does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the 
    # remarked out baseurl= line instead.

    Any errors in Apache's error log?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?
