httpd/cpanel unstable.

I get emails every day like:
httpd failed @ [time] on
Unable to conect to port 80
tailwatchd failed @ [time]
cpsrvd failed @ [date][time] A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method:  [tcp connect]

Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 2086

Also when I restart apache this comes up...
[error] VirtualHost [my ip address]:0 -- mixing * ports and non-* ports with a NameVirtualHost address is not supported, proceeding with undefined results

Website has been down more frequently than I expect. Quite frequently my whm login will not work or only show two blank frames. Please help, the reason I moved to a new host is for reliability.
If you haven't already done so open up a support ticket. They're pretty good. I've had my VPS more than a year and never had problems like this. Any issues that did come up support has been quick and competent at fixing them.

good luck!

I found out what the real problem is now. PHP seems to be running out of memory.

Found this in my error logs...

Hello keyo,

The log snippet you posted just means that Apache did not have a clean shutdown and the pid file was still there. Although I would suspect that you are right and you are running out of ram which would cause services to crash/shutdown.
