500 and 503 errors, do you know how to solve these errors? (2 posts)

    Since yesterday, my WP (3.3.2) site often displays 500 and 503 errors. On the server error log, I've found two entries which happens often, and I believe these are the cause of the errors.

    [warn] (103)Software caused connection abort: mod_fcgid: ap_pass_brigade failed in handle_request function

    [warn] mod_fcgid: can't apply process slot for /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/index.php

    I didn't make any large changes to my site including plugins and themes, so I've been wondering if it's a problem of WordPress side or the server side. It would be great if anyone points me to right direction to solve it.

    Check with your host tech support if they are doing some maintenance work on your server. If they are, then the problem will probably go away once they have finished.

    Otherwise your server may be overloaded. Do check with your host tech support. It it persist, and you are on a shared hosting service, you may want to ask them to move you to a different server.

    What is your URL?
