When I tried to access my site, suddenly I could not access it anymore. I checked my error log and found this.

Then, I tried to restart the httpd service. I saw this
Stopping httpd: [ Failed ] Starting httpd: [ OK ]
After restarting the service, I can now access again my site.
What seems to be the problem here? I'm sure that I did not touch or restart the server. Can somebody explain what I have experienced, and how can I prevent it from happening again? I don't what my users to find they can't access my site.
Here is some relevant info:
