Do you have enough main memory?

try 'free -m -s5' to monitor your memory usage.

How large is your swap partition?

df -h

check /var/log/boot.msg, messages, warn, for anything amiss.

Are you running out of disk space on your log partition?

None of the services are running anymore, http, ftp, samba etc... I cannot know if the console works because I'm not near the server. I looked over and over the log files and couldn't see anything wrong. Or maybe my log settings are not right?
