    hi guys i really need your help. i'm not experienced on managing a server.

    today my server (dedicated virtual at started to move really slow so i decided to restart it. then i really don't know why i restarted from my terminal the /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server and then restarted apache, but apache didn't started.

    i tried several times to reboot the server and nothing.

    can anyone give me a hand on this? i don't know anything else what to do.

    my server has almost 3 years running ispconfig.

    So what did you mean by "started to move really slow"? Webpages in general (served by the distro's package webserver) or the ISPConfig Panel (served by the ISPConfig own server -> ispconfig_server)?

    Whicht apache did not start? ISpconfig's one (-> /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server) or the distro's own one?

    Normally some error's are directly thrown on the console when running the start script, otherwise you should find a hint in the webserver's logs, slightly depending on your distro the should be at /var/log/apache (or apache2 or httpd).
    Did the startscript gave you any error or at least a "failed" or how do you assume apache not to be running?

    Any errors in Apache's error log? What's the output of
    httpd -t
