Without more to go on to the actual cause of the problem...

Restarting apache daily isn't a bad idea in general if even just a 
graceful restart.
kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/`
which I believe should be safe any time of day.

If a complete restart, maybe early morning off hours assuming your 
server requires a high degree of availability?
