Hi,
Our web application (apache+php+oracle) is not stable for 2 days. it stoped working (page can not be displayed/time out) frequently. This happened after we had an oracle problem (our client stations lost connection to oracle for about 10 minutes) Tuesday AM.
Any adea how can we fix this problem?
Thanks a lot,
Luchuan

Could be almost anything ... are there any errors in the Apache, Oracle, PHP or OS log files that may be relevent??

Is it something as silly as a full disk/partition??

In addition to checking the logs for errors, make sure you check your network connections

Agreed with the two experts above -- you should check that your have a working network connection by pinging or nslookuping something:
 
  nslookup www.google.com
  ping www.yahoo.com

Check if you have any disc partitions full at 100%:

  df

Check if Apache is indeed running:

  ps aux | grep apache    (or)
  ps aux | grep httpd

Those commands should list a number of apache processes handling connections.

It's often the simple things that are difficult to think of to check, when things are crashing, but they're definitely worth checking.

Hi All,
We finally found out the root cause: A new web server(under testing) and the current web server have the same IP address.

Thanks a lot for your ideas.
