I'm dealing with a situation here. I'm attempting to run a webserver over a few hidden services. I've set up my torrc file to contain a few hidden services. And then run just well. But then after a few hours, or sometimes minutes, the sites will become unreachable. Only when I run service tor restart does the issue fix itself, until it gets jammed again, and et cetra. Looking at torrc, I can see that it has to do with circuit building.

As a note, I haven't shared these hidden services with anyone, so an attack can't even be an option, I assume.

What could be the problem? And how can I fix it?
