ldap login failing after a week

I have a redhat 9 server that is hosting a website using php/apache. It handles user logins by ldap and active directory. Everything works however my clients are reporting that after a week they are unable to login. A reboot of the server fixes the problem, however I'd rather know whats happening and fix it then have them reboot the server once a week. (yes its crossed my mind to run a cron every week to reboot).

I need help looking at logs to find out whats happening. Thanks!

Check the error messages in
/etc/httpd/logs/error_log
and
/etc/httpd/logs/access_log
for more clues.
It could be LDAP or AD server issue.
Chekc the log files and even viewer on LDAP and AD server.

I did a more on the error_log and acces_log and it appears that apache stopped logging sometime in late February. So now I have to figure out why it stopped logging. But the bad news is I have no logs for the last couple months.

Maybe you are running out of space in the folder you are logging to (probably /var)?

I just did a quick fix cron job to reboot the server twice a week. But I believe you were both right from what I was running into.
