Apache stops/starts after a period of time

    I have a problem with my apache on a Debian 4.0 distribution.
    The apache service stops and starts alone after some time.. but i don't know why.. i have read it's because it dosen't have free RAM Memory left to perate.. and in proccess I see sometimes apache2 <defunct> ..

    I have about 30+ websites hosted on the server + cs game servers, radio servers(with backup) and hub services(verlihub)..

    And i have a problem with MySQL too. Sometimes on the hosted sites that are using a db connection it says maximum connections reached..

    I modified the /etc/my.cnf the maximum connections allowed to 500.. and still gives that error..

    The main problem is the apache thing.. because all the sites goes down when the apache is stopped.

    I have watchdog on that tells me when the apache is down and when is up.. (here is a small preview):
    [May 14, 2009 03:33 PM] 'Web Server (Apache)' service started.
    [May 14, 2009 03:28 PM] 'Web Server (Apache)' service stopped.
    [May 14, 2009 03:18 PM] 'Web Server (Apache)' service started.
    [May 14, 2009 03:12 PM] 'Web Server (Apache)' service stopped.

    Please, check the mail Apache log for the errors that could cause the issue:

    Hy Zagr, i don't have the folder httpd in /var/log.. I only have this two folders: apache2 and sw-cp-server.
    I checked the apache2 error.log file and i have a couple of warnings and errors..
    Looked at it but I don't know where exactly is the problem.. can u please point me to the right direction?
    I attached the 2 files with error log from apache2 and sw-cp-server here..

    The problem is strange..

    Problem Solved with the Name Servers.. i had to register my Name Servers at the International Registry to work with .com's, org's etc.
