Hi Gang

Thanks in advance. I'm really rather new at this. Would someone be so 
kind as to give me some general information as to what the following 
lines in my error log mean. It seems to be a restart (or part of a 
restart as I deleted some of the lines that don't need any explanation 
really ... the individual domains involved, ... it's a virtual hosting 
setup} but it is happening every night at the indicated time and is not 
"scheduled" as far as I can see, or the result of a direct command ... 
at least not from me.  There is no apparent difference in this basic 
'list', set of log files, and when I actually force a restart, only the 
system time does not change except when I manually force a restart 
{graceful}. This seems quite odd and I'm wondering if perhaps I've been 
hacked in some fashion. At one point ... a couple of weeks ago. All my 
logs "vanished". Errors, access, the works, were all blank from one day 
to the next. I don't recall seeing this nightly event prior to that 
event. There is nothing sensitive on the specific machine in question, 
so I.m not concerned from a realistic standpoint. But if the machine has 
been invaded in some fashion I will want to clean and move the data 
files and wipe and reinstall the system files... which will be a pain in 
the gazebo ;) Basically I guess I'm wondering if I am correct in my 
assessment of the meaning of a list like this, is it indeed a restart 
sequence as it appears to be, or could something else be causing this 
set of events.
