I noticed this too a few hours ago and restarted the apache server. I 
also reset the clock (which was about 10 minutes behind) with ntpdate 
(ntp seems to be installed but not running).

The OS is kind of old on that machine. It's RHEL AS release 3, which 
dates from October 2003, though with the latest update (update 9, June 
2007). Latest is RHEL 5.2.

Other software versions:

Linux 2.4.21 (latest is 2.6.26)
Apache 2.0.46 (latest is 2.2.9)
MySQL 3.23.58 (latest is 5.0.51a)
PHP 4.3.2 (latest is 5.2.6)
MediaWiki 1.5.4 (latest is 1.12)

It might be worth upgrading some of that, though if that includes Linux 
or RHEL overall it would probably require physical access to the box. 
I'm more familiar with Ubuntu, and I couldn't figure out offhand if 
there is some kind of mechanism to automatically download and install 
software similar to apt. I couldn't get up2date to work.
