Hello,

We have a windows server 2003 x64 service pack 2 running apache 2.2 for a Drupal site. The site is constantly down and we have to restart the apache services to get the site up. Attached are the error messages that we are getting.

It looks like you are running PHP and that somebody is referencing a page that does not exist and that something (a PHP script) is having problems.

giltir,

We are not running PHP. The only application running on this server is Drupal.

Drupal is written in PHP and so you are running PHP.  It is a PHP module that is getting the error.

I would any Drupal support forums to see if this is a known problem.

Can you see any specific errors in the Apache log about that time?  Again, one of the errors is that a page can't be found.  It is hard to tell if the php error came first or if the page can't be found error came first.

There are a few hits with that level of PHP getting that type of error.  So upgrading to a new level may help, the most recent version is 5.2.9-2.

These are all the errors and warning that we have on the event viewer when the server is up. Some of these errors do not make sense at all.  E.g. the system errors. The server is not connected to a printer. The error that I posted before is the error that we get when the server is down.

Thanks

The original error is saying that the program httpd.exe was executing php5ts.dll  and that dll had a problem.

However in your event viewer you are showing other errors, one of which that could be causing all of the other problems.

How much RAM do you have on this server?  
What is the size of the page file?  

It looks like you are running out of of virtual memory (RAM+page file size=virtual memory).  I would start by increasing the page file size, but make sure you have enough disk space to increase it.  If you don't have enough disk space, you will just have the same problem.

I would monitor the commit charge and the next time the problem occurs definitely see what commit charge is.  

Are you seeing any other messages that may relate to the server running out of virtual memory?
