    Looking in my server logs I often see messages like this:

    As you can see its not consistently happening and its happening across sites in the network.

    Is this something I need to be worried about?

  • Hi @steveatty,

    It looks like you have some cron jobs running on your server. Take a look at the following thread for understanding what may be causing this issue:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28751020/handler-for-fastcgi-script-returned-invalid-result-code

    I do not think it is anything serious. Try increasing the timeout as mentioned in the thread above and may be it should get fixed.

    I know its the wp-cron jobs firing – I was wondering if anyone knew what result code 32 is as there seems to be no documentation anywhere. Timeout was set to 350 seconds – I’ve increased it.

    Hi @steveatty,

    It’s just a number associated with that error. Have you seen the error show up since the time you have increased the timeout?

    Steve

    (@steveatty)

    yes its still doing it – timeout is now 900 seconds.

    Nothing is being reported in my php error logs nor my fpm_php error logs.

    Its extremely intermittent, and I think it only started when I changed the server over to https

    OK it looks like each time I get one of those in the error log I also get an apache 500 error in the main access log…. but not sure if the 500 is due to the fast-cgi timeout or if its the other way round

    @steve
    encountering the same issue. have you ever resolved this?
    do you know what it was?

    thanks for any help

    No I’m still getting it. I think its one specific plugin that’s doing it. I might put some logging into the wp_cron code to write to its own file so I can see if I can work out just what is going on.
