    I have occasional trouble with my server where it just stops working. I ssh into it (it can take 10 minutes to login), and "reboot".

    So, how do I find out what it's doing, or what it was doing before it ground to a hault?

    Check those log files:
    /var/log/boot.log
    /var/log/boot.log.*

    And also this one:
    /var/log/messages

    Then try to figure out at what time your server stopped working, then check the logs for strange entries.

    Hope this helps, note that the path to the logs are "as seen" on a Fedora Core 2 install.

    ahh... the messages file had something to say:

    there were a bunch of those. Maybe I need a ram upgrade?

    Hmmm, sounds bad yeah... How much RAM do you have and how much domains do you host?

    23 domains, 256mb.

    problem is, I'm grandfathered into their $35 plan. The plan with 512mb is $99 a month (ouch).

    Funny, I got about 25 domains, but 512mb of ram and it's working fine...
    Check for a new plan.
