Did this happen only once or do you mean that apache eventually stops responding and has to
be restarted?

If only once, I suspect apache wasn't running to begin with... 

If it happens many times, then something is switching off apache. Check the error_log.

Note that "connection refused" is a low-level network message at the TCP/IP layer which means
that the server is not listening on the port you requested (usually port 80 for HTTP). This
is usually because the service is not running.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
