CentOS server hangs and needs to restart

Post by aliliaquit » 2020/11/03 11:59:55

Hi, I am using CentOS as webserver where i am running following:
PHP 5.3.3. (CLI) version
Apache 2.2.15 (Unix) version
After some days about every 10 days after my server hangs and then i need to restart the server. Server is actually a virtual machine hosted on Vmware virtualization platform.
Your kind support will be highly appreciated.

I have moved this post to the CentOS 6 forum since that is the only version that ships php 5.3.3 and Apache httpd 2.2.15.

Please note that your problem may not be worth fixing on the current machine. CentOS 6 goes End of Life at the end of this month, Nov 2020, and there will be no more security updates (or any other updates). You need to be moving to a newer version ASAP. There is no upgrade path from one major version of CentOS to another so you will need to back up your data, install a fresh copy of the newer distro, reinstall and reconfigure all your apps and restore your data.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

read the logs

to help we need some information

although it can be possible, an enterprise distro does not hangs unless it has a hardware issue or an extreme load caused by ddos or application error.
