It's keeps kernel panicing and I can't to to find a way to fix it.

Any help is appreciated.

The root problem here is not the kernel panic, instead its stopping a process that has not responded in a long time. In this case its the ps process which lists processes and its failing as it reads the /proc system (which stores process information and kernel settings).

Have you checked the Hardware yet? I would check IPMI reports for memory / cpu errors and perhaps do a memtest86 run or two. Are you on a VPS or dedicated server? This is something where you probably should be pulling in your Hosting provider or Datacenter.

This cPanel install is running in a VM on a dedicated VMWare ESXi server. I have attempted to contact my datacenter and every time I try to get the to look at this, they say "This is out of the scope of your service". They should be responsible for this? Right? I mean after all, they were the ones who downgraded the RAM and took out to much of it. –  Phill Fernandes Jun 2 '11 at 12:08
