I have an old PC and I decided to revive it. A LAMP (for my own use) and a P2P server (torrent and e2dk).
My old PC is an AMD Athlon XP (1400 MHz) with 384 Mb of RAM
First of all I installed Ubuntu Server 11.10, SSH, FTP, SAMBA and LAMP. With this configuration my home server works well, with no problem.
Then I went to the P2P server and I tried rTorrent and then uTorrent Server Alpha. And here is my problem.
After a few hours (maybe 10 hours, or maybe 30 hours) with the torrent app running (rTorrent or uTorrent) I lose the connection to my home server. That is, I cannot access via ssh, I cannot access the apache server, etc. but I can ping the home server. It seems that the server freezes and all I can do is reboot the server physically.
So, I have two questions: What is the problem? and How can I solve it?
