    Which looks like you have configured several index files but the user doesn't have to right to see any of them.
    The other thing you should do is to create a favicon.ico to prevent Apache from polluting your error.log with needless stuff.

    But you didn't answer my question: did you restart your Apache several times?
    No I did not restart apache several time.

    That's actually strange. And there's no one else who could have restarted Apache on August 25th and August 29th?
    Then you should definitely check for some bad processes. When these are able to restart your Apache then they have to run with root privileges which means your server would be completely lost because root can also install Kernel level rootkits.

    But then you should check all your files for malicious code.

    I also wonder where the newest log is. The last entry is from August 29th. That's six days ago.

    [EDIT]
    Oh, actually an explanation for the strange reboots could be your log rotation daemon which restarts the server gracefully to make Apache using another log file.
