Httpd causes Asterisk to freeze

Has anyone experienced this issue: Whenever I start the httpd service to go into the web console, it will regularly cause Asterisk to freeze up. This requires a “restart now” of Asterisk which isnt a terrible thing, but it causes issues for anyone who is on the phone when Asterisk freezes. They get static, can hear one way only, customer can hear them or vice versa, etc… Once the restart now is run those issues cease. Has anyone else experienced this?
