If it has been going on for a month now then either the hosting company is 
completely incompetent or you haven't been pushing for a resolution as 
vigorously as you should have. If the former then witholding payment of your 
hosting fees might 'help' them :)

Did you know before you signed up that they were using cutting technology  -- 
Apache 2.0.X and PHP 4.2.X -- which apparently don't play well together (yet).

Your best bet is to stick to the tried and tested Apache 1.3.X series, maybe 
you can persuade them to downgrade?
