1. At 02:30am my server started sending me WARNING messages

    Warning: service httpd not running (server: ns1.serverxxx.com)!

    A little later this changed to

    Warning: service httpd not running (server: ns1.serverxxx.com)!

    Warning: service ftpd not running (server: ns1.serverxxx.com)!

    The services appear to be working, I can FTP to the server & both websites & ISPConfig (on port :81) appear to be working as expected.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

    thanks

    Please check if apache is listening on localhost too.
     
  3. I don't think so - not sure

    I'm not certain how to check that - I looked in the Apache config file & that just has port 80 (listen)

    I tried to restart Apache & it failed

    then I did this
    [[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/httpd start
    Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs
    [FAILED]

    I rebooted the server & manually started Apache - it's working (thankfully) but I'm still getting the Warning: service httpd not running (server: ns1.serverxxx.com)!

    BTW the warning about FTP not working stopped all by itself several hours ago.

    This server has been running for a long time without this problem & I have not done any system updates. It uses Fedora 8 64bit.

    thanks (in advance)
     
  4. something else (may be related)

    One of my resellers uses Joomla & all hiw joomla websites have not been working from about the same time the WARNING email started, the error message when you try to access one of the websites is...

    PHP Warning: Unknown: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/share/pear/suhosin.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/web???/) in Unknown on line 0

    ... some issue with suhosin.php

    he has started to delete the websites & re-install them & that appears to have fixed his problem.

    And finally (for now) the bandwidth usage has increased enormously.

    Hm, Apache is listening on all interfaces, so this is not the problem. What's the output of
    Code:
    iptables -L
    ?

    Thats ok too. Please post the content of the /etc/hosts file.
     
  10. Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    217.72.98.213 localhost.localdomain localhost
    78.129.111.11 ns1.xxxxxx.co.uk ns1
    #78.129.111.11 ns2.xxxxxxxx.co.uk ns2
    ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6


    NB. I'm not certain about 217.72.98.213 - so I have commented it out & then I restarted the network services but the WARNING messages continue

  13. The HTTP server stopped (and strangely so did the warning messages)

    I can not get it to re-start

    [[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/httpd start
    Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    Unable to open logs

    I have tried re-booting the server but Apache does not want to start

    the problem appears to have been faults with missing LOG files - now resolved

    many thanks
