I have a dedicated server with the latest WordPress installation on it.
I have just received a number of error messages with the server timing out. We had to restart Apache a few times before because the server was reporting a 500 time out but now the error logs are showing a different message:
mod_fcgid: can't apply process slot for /var/www/cgi-bin/cgi_wrapper/cgi_wrapper, referer: http://xxxxxx.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1425&action=edit&message=6
mod_fcgid: can't apply process slot for /var/www/cgi-bin/cgi_wrapper/cgi_wrapper
- in addition to other error messages, which I'll share once the project has been awarded.
I'm also keen to get my server set up properly and optimised for wordpress as I often get big spikes in visitors. Let me know if you have any questions.
