    After the Update on a Debian 3.1 I got a Problem with Apache: It's shutting down regularly.
    Does anybody have a solution to solve it?

    I'm having the exact same problem on a 1und1 Suse 9.3 dedicated server.
    My log shows the same, got apache running but my plesk control panel is inaccesible.
    Please help us swsoft staff!

    The server provider's support found the mistake:

    Watchdog checked the Apache on a wrong IP.

    First solution to prevent: deactivate Watchdog monitoring for the Apache deamon.

    This is not a durable solution, but it works.

    Has anyone had any luck coming up with a better solution than disabling watchdog? It's a bit dodgy to lose a feature so that apache doesn't crash.

    OK. Got it going.

    These were the steps I took:

    Make sure you have apache monitoring turned on.
    tail -f /opt/psa/var/modules/watchdog/log/monit.log
    disable watchdog
    reenable watchdog

    tail will catch something similar to this:
    [EST Mar 6 18:42:05] 'apache' failed, cannot open a connection to INET[]

    Which in my case was the IP address I set the machine up on (an internal DHCP address, which really makes no sense to me. Shouldn't it just 127?)

    I added this as a virtual interface to my 2nd nic (internal network anyway, who cares)

    Reenabled watchdog. No issues.

    I checked as many different places as I could, but am yet to find where the config for this is stored. If I find it I'll post it here.

    Monit Config

    The monit config file is locate here on Plesk 8.1.1 Linux:


    I had this issue and the monitrc file was referencing the static IP I had configured for a second interface, simple adjustment.
