    09:38:57 up 19:17, 1 user, load average: 70.95, 70.55, 70.61

    System information as of Thu May 20 01:14:51 EEST 2010

    System load: 58.62 Memory usage: 45% Processes: 189
    Usage of /: 2.4% of 71.52GB Swap usage: 93% Users logged in: 0

    Your server is swapping and that is not good.

    What are the specs of the server and what is the output of:

    df -h

    So it doesn't boot at all. Apache is a service and if it can't start it shouldn't stop the server from booting. Try do disconnect network cable and reboot the server. Just to be sure it's not ddos.

    If you succeed to boot the server look through log files, syslog, apache log etc..
