    Hi guys, My server has been crashing almost on a daily basis. What happens is the server ram gets used up and it becomes unresponsive. When I'm in SSH I can't even do anything as the site has no ram what so ever and my machine is a really nice one 4 gigs i5 processor.

    I have hundreds and hundreds of the following in my /var/log/httpd

    ::1 - - [03/May/2012:06:16:02 -0700] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 - "-" "Apache (internal dummy connection)"
    Code (markup):
    I've also noticed in my error_log

    I've seen several article on the connection dummy issue but I've patched and nothing is working. Godaddy is not providing any support and so far I cannot manage to keep my sever up and it's starting to become a huge pain for me and my websites.
