I simply log in on the server that hosts my confluence wiki (an ec2 instance) and initiate ./startup.sh to get confluence running again (removing the PID file). I've enabled logging, and reviewed the logs (catalina and the other one), but the logs don't reveal anything of note to me. Can you please share with me what I can share with you that will help me figure out why it crashes? I would like to begin letting the public review and use the content of my wiki.

Most probably the cause of your issue is either OutOfMemory issue which is well documented here:
Hope it helps.
This instance was running on an Amazon EC2 Micro, which is a little resource sparse for Confluence to run stably. The OP had an open support request and eventually had luck with running Confluence as a service, which stopped the crashes so long as XML backups were off.
