Web pages not displaying

Email, FTP and access to web panels okay but no web pages showing, wordpress site etc. Example when I enter www.jmb01.com in browser address bar nothing happens, just a blank screen.

Status: 
Active

Howdy -- hmm, the domain "jmb01.com" resolves to the IP "176.126.245.218" for me.

And I don't see to be able to connect to Apache, Webmin, or SSH on that IP address.

Is that the correct IP for your server?

Also, was this all working at one point, did something just stop recently? Or was this always a problem?

And is your server directly on the Internet, or is it behind a NAT router?

Hi. Yeah that's the correct IP.

The server is directly on the Internet and everything was working the last time I checked about a week ago.

Postfix and Dovecot are still accessible and working at normal speed. FTP and SSH works also. The SSH port is 83.

Does it help to restart Apache?

What you may want to try is these commands:

service httpd stop
killall -9 httpd
service httpd start

After that, are you able to access any of your sites?

If not, are you seeing any errors in /var/log/httpd/error_log?

Restarting Apache didn't help. Below is a dump from the error log. What is the MaxRequestWorkers setting mentioned at the end?

Hmm, I'm seeing this error in your logs:

server reached MaxRequestWorkers setting, consider raising the MaxRequestWorkers setting

If your server has reached it's maximum allowed connections, that could cause the behavior you're seeing.

Is one of your websites perhaps getting hit particularly hard?

Also, what is the output of these two commands:

uptime
ps auxwf

Okay, that all looks pretty normal.

It's been working a bit better for me over the last hour or so, but just to see if anything unusual shows up, what does this command show:

netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head

It just says -bash: netstat: command not found

I see in the AWstats that there's been over 191,000 hits on jmb01.com today alone from a couple of Russian IP addresses. I'll block these in IP tables and see if that helps.

Thanks for your help. I'll let you know if I have any more problems.

You may also want to take a peek at $HOME/logs/access_log for that domain to see if any IP's are currently hammering away on certain parts of your site.

Also, it looks like netstat may not be installed -- you can install that by running "yum install net-tools".

Okay. I installed net-tools. Here is the output.

[root@server ~]# netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head 74 185.103.252.170 41 185.130.4.120 27 185.103.252.3 23 77.103.236.60 17 185.130.4.197 12 104.25.19.33 6 104.25.18.33 5 143.95.251.2 4 142.4.26.236 3 2.126.104.206 [root@server ~]#

Also, here's a portion of the access log file as it's massive and the same all the way down,

Ah goodness, yeah that looks like a lot bots hammering on your WordPress installation.

I'd probably start banning any IP address that's hitting "/xmlrpc.php" until thinks are back to normal on your server.
