What about just fixing apache? I could help with that.
well, I think my issue related to your help;
Server load reach to 216 suddnly, then I call DC to restart server and check
hardware, They reply "Hardware is OK and hasn't any problem"
I check apache and Install apf firewall but still problem happened.
May help me in this issue please ?

Is most of the traffic legit?
I Don't know how to confirm it.
You might need to setup some dos protection. Software protection or hardware might even be needed.
