Should you find error messages in /etc/httpd/logs/error_log such as

[Tue Mar 28 04:29:42 2006] [notice] child pid 24546 exit signal File size limit exceeded (25)

This means that you have a log file that is great than 2GB in size. To fix this run

cd /etc/httpd/domlogs
du -sh * | grep [0-9]G

This should show you the file that is causing issues e.g. domain.com.log. To reset it, but loosing the webstats run

cd /etc/httpd/domlogs
rm domain.com.log
touch domain.com.log
/etc/init.d/httpd stop
/etc/init.d/httpd start

Do not use just an Apache restart but a full stop/start to make sure it closes all its old files
