My server had been crashing for while with Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and bug check error code as Stop 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.It would literally stop by business till I reboot it again.So I tried pull up all information I could get and fix this.
Here is what I found-Possible causes:A faulty driver recently installed Faulty RAM Antivirus Corrupted NTFS file system
I checked the system logs and found errors related to NTFS. Well, my disk needed a chkdsk /r /f to fix this.Ran it at the command prompt and since it required a reboot to fix on the system drive (C, had to reboot. Came back successfully.It has been 14 days and it has not recurred.
as many of you know, FreeBSD is a stable system... I have many other FreeBSD servers (with the same kernel as this one) that doesn't have problems but this server keeps rebooting once or twice a day (EVERY DAY)
it's just a reboot... something very very similar to someone pushing the reset button
1) messages, security, auth or dmesg has no entries just before the reset, so the kernel is not getting aware the server is rebooting
2) the server comes back after around 10 minutes (reboot time + fsck)
this is happening for long time, so I compiled a new kernel... and the problem didn't stop
I request the datacenter techs to replace hardwares and they told me everything was replaced: motherboard, CPU, memories... and yesterday also the power suply so I have no other idea on what to do
in fact I have one... setting a nobreak in this server power suply for 2 or 3 days to see if the problem stops, but the datacenter didn't like this idea
I've recently had problems where customers will upload PHP scripts that seem to use alot of CPU. I've got PRM installed but when a PHP script uses a lot of CPU, it doesn't seem to kill the processes or do anything to stop it crashing the server. I've checked the logs of PRM and it does kill some processes that use a lot of CPU/RAM though...
The ideal solution would be for PRM or something else to stop people being able to access the script causing excessive CPU/RAM usage. Even suspending for the reason of using excessive CPU/RAM would be sufficient.
For those interested the OS is CentOS 5.3 with cPanel 11, Apache and the latest PHP 5. Average load is always between 0.50 - 1.90.
Our server is running; Plesk 11.0.9 and CentOS 5.7 it has a Q8200 CPU @ 2.33GHz and 2GB of RAM. Now there are just two websites on the server plus a couple of redirects/forwarding domains, although lots of domains are still on the server but turned off in Plesk. Both websites are OSCommerce sites and I just need to keep these sites going until the end of the year when we will switch to our new Joomla based website.
We have seen an increasing number of server crashes and after various checks of the logs, fitting a new BIOS battery, check of the hardware by EasySpace who host the server, installation of ClamAV, LMD and RKHunter (which did find some Trojans and Suspect software), I have traced it down to some external Http activity that is taking all of my CPU time and RAM. Here is a screen capture of the Htop listing and when I killed these processes the CPU and RAM went back to normal. The problem is that I usually have to restart the HTTPD service and sometimes things get so bad that the server crashes and I have to request a power cycle.
Recently, I have switched from Siteground hosting services and everything was fine. Now I have changed over to a dedicated server that resides at my house. I'm routing DNS through FreeDNS (freedns.afraid.org).
For a week or two, the server was fine. Recently, we started working on the website on the new server (posting new articles, changing the theme, adding some plugins, etc.) and it's steadily gotten worse and worse about, when we save changes to something, or post an article, the website will go offline. Eventually, the website will come back.
My question is: What is causing this? The actual server isn't shutting off, so It has to be something between my modem and the user. Is my modem just shutting off because it's overloaded? (that seems sort of improbable) Or, is it a DNS issue? (I have a Dynamic DNS system set up that is working fine)
I cannot figure out why my server is always dead when i wake up most mornings.
I am trying to figure out why my server is crashing nearly every night between 12am and 9am eastern time. When it crashes it is down all night until i wake up and have to reboot the damn server. I am wondering if cron jobs are taking up alot of the cpu or something because the server load isn't that much. here is my specs:
Sites: I am currently hosting 4,500 sites on the server.
The server load usually stays below 1 and is blazing fast. I just cannot figure out why it crashes when i sleep. I dont know if there is a virus or what. PHP mail is disabled so there would be no spamming crashing it. Here is my cron jobs:
I have a FreeBSD server with Cpanel. It keeps crashing every few hours. Data centre swapped RAM, Chassie but no luck. Hard Drive was scanned and no errors found. I can't find anything in the logs (/var/logs/messages). Which direction should I be looking into?
One of my servers at FDC Servers is crashing (= kernel panic) every few days since we got it.
The specs of the machine are: C2D E6550, 2 GB
Linux .. 18.104.22.168-64.fc8 #1 SMP Sat Mar 29 09:15:49 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I opened several tickets with FDC, after running memtest and clocking down memory they say it's not a hardware issue but software related.
I see that according to this ticket, memtest has been run without error and the memory was even slightly clocked down to avoid problems. It appears that the errors you are reporting are software related...
I already tried several kernels and different application versions.
this is getting out of control. I have a dedicated server that is "unmanaged" meaning, I manage it
I typically can make my way around a server and do most things - but in this case I'm stuck. I host a number of websites on this box and have went over a year with little problems. The past month or so it seems as though the server crashes daily or every other day. It will be running just fine, then all of a sudden the processes and loads will go out of control until the server is just unusable.
What do I need to provide here for you to be of any help to me? I watch the processes using "top -ci" and it's typically small output - but when it's getting ready to crash it's like a ton of processes get backed up and continue running.
this server is crashing after a few hours... it just got frozen... and after rebooted the server, i was looking at the /var/log/message logs and saw this ( you will see when system restart after the crash ):

This is a fedora core server, xeon 3.2 GHZ x 4 procs using about 25 MBits per day.

I have a VPS from mediatemple.net, and I'm not sure what is going on, but Apache has stopped running every day in the morning and it just stopped running about 2 hours ago and I didn't catch it until now
From the error log, i'm showing:

Any ideas what might be causing this? just came home and my site was down again, and I've lost 15,000 pageviews already today.
I have a VPS , I recently upgraded because the server kept crashing due to lack of memory. I actually upgraded about two hours ago and the damn thing crashed again! I went into virtuozzo and it said I had 12 mb of memory left.
So I restarted the container, the site loads faster than ever, and says I have 16% of memory left
Assuming a linux server / apache / php / mysql setup
I'm wondering 1) how you can find out which php script is causing problems, i assume infinite looping, crashing a server and 2) are there any measures you can take (maybe in the php or apache configuration) that can prevent such a thing from happening in the first place, other than writing good code obviously?
I have a brand new A8i server from 1&1 that has crashed twice today and could only be rebooted through the 1&1 control panel (not Plesk). Out of the blue the server is not accessible from the Plesk CP and is not responding to pings. I have looked through the logs and do not see anything that stands out (I am not very Linux savvy). Is there somewhere specific that I can look that would tell me why it is locking up/crashing? I have only had the server about 2 weeks and am only running email on it (no websites besides webmail and Plesk CP). It is possible that there is a hardware issue, but I cannot have 1&1 check it until after hours tonight.
Server is an 8 core Intel Atom 2.6GHz with 8GB RAM.
My server was hit with flood recently, to the point where I was unable to log in via SSH. Running 'netstat' command showed I was getting flooded with thousands of http requests from China/Saudi Arabia/Korea. I installed APF firewall and added those countries to deny list.
Next day I was hit from Russia and Romania and some others. By reading some posts on this site, on top of APF, I have also installed Dos Deflate. It was working for couple of hours, but then it stopped working. I could not even log in via SSH. My provider told me that APF was using all of the "conntrack" connections. I have increased conntrack connections to 130,000 (I have 4 Gigs of RAM on my server). Is that possible? (I have about 300 IP ranges in my APF deny list).
Next day, I was got hit by different attack: there was 11 Mbps of malicious traffic on average sent to my server. My provider put me behind firewall to mitigate against that kind of attack.
Currently, I am both behind the hardware firewall and I have APF and Dos Deflate running. However my server is not accessible.
When I request, I can log in for couple of minutes, but then I get kicked out.
If your server is blocking googlebot from finding your robots.txt file, how do you configure your firewall to unblock it?
I've searched through Google and I've seen may people just say your firewall is blocking it, but none mention how to really stop it from doing that. Like does Google have an IP it uses, and if so, what is the IP you should whitelist for your server?
As I keep getting that message: Network unreachable: robots.txt unreachable and I'm sure it's due to a firewall issue, just have no idea how to fix that.
Today my system which is hosting the site bepenfriends got compramised(win 2k3) and now LT tech guys are working on it to reload the system with a data save. I was not having a hardware firewall which caused this problem. But i had windows firewall, windows malinious software removal tool (defender i haven't installed). I have updated all patches of win2k3 whch was released till today.
Now after restore it will be great work to bring my website back with all those rewritten urls and the softwares and its licenses.
Now please help me out in below stuff.
How to stop further attack and further compramisation of server.
I'm having a very odd problem with one of my Linux (CentOS) cpanel server, all the server's services (http, ssh, mail, dns, etc) stop responding but the server still responds to ping.
I can't find anything wrong at all on the log files either, and the technicians that manually restart the server have told me that there is no indication of a problem on the screen.
I suspected a hardware issue and had the data center techs run a hardware test on the server but everything cleared ok.
This issue started a couple of weeks ago, no major upgrade or install took place when it started happening. From what i can see the halts are completely random, some times it goes for days without it happening and some times it happens just hours after the reboots.
