Apache is creating folders on its own and crashing portions of our site!

We have a Drupal site rolled out on Apache 2.0.63, PHP 5.2.5, and MySQL 5.0.92.  We have a section of our site called "online", which resolves fromt the url /online.  Randomly, it seems, an empty folder will be created in our public_html folder called "online", and the /online section of the site will go down.  Once we rename or remove the "online" folder, the /online section comes back up.  None of us are school enough in Apache to know what is happening.  Any ideas are appreciated!

Very unlikely that Apache is actually doing it.
Searach the culprit in your Drupal installation: Either bad/rogue drupal plugins are to blame, or you've been hacked.
