Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

There isn't really enough information here for a developer to confirm this issue is a bug, or to begin working on it, so I am marking this bug Incomplete for now.

If you can provide exact steps so that a developer can reproduce the original problem, then please add them to this bug and change the status back to New.

Changed in apache2 (Ubuntu):

IIRC apache by default does not store dumps (to avoid exploiting remotely to fill disks or anything like it).
But it can be enabled [1][2]

Hello Claudio,

Is your system otherwise stable, or did you notice anything else crashing in a similar way? You could try to search your system logs for segmentation faults or other unexpected crashes. This is useful information to understand if the problem is actually with apache2 or with some other component of your system (e.g. a library) which makes Apache crash as a consequence.

Have you checked /var/crash for apache crash files?

The log holds nothing obvious that I'd see, if anything I wonder if something is overheating. 115 °C is really high for most components.
Hhave you tried to enable apache core dumps as I asked in comment #4
