Apache has an option for monitoring server activities (is called httpd_monitor). What version of Apache did you use? My version is 1.1.3 and never dies. Maybe you have so many accesses on your web and must start multiple instances of Apache.

There is a program called BigBrother that is also very helpful. It can be configured to page and/or email you if any daemons go down. It can be found at http://www.iti.qc.ca/iti/users/sean/bb-dnld/
