    check the error log. You'll probably find an apache process died.

    You may need X to tweak the max requests value.

    Nah, there are no dead Apache processes. Just fastcgi PHP processes that are restarted, which should not be causing the 500 errors.

    The trouble is that I am unable to get these errors while browsing the website, and as such it has made trouble shooting much harder. When does this happen?

    If this happens again, please copy and paste the date/time you see at the bottom of the error so I can try to find the issue in the logs.

    As of right now, I do believe the issue to be fixed, and as such the error should no longer occur.

    Now, where do I change it from that red text to the lovely green Fixed text?

    Okay, so I thought I had fixed it, but it really wasn't fixed yet (I got the error :p) so now it should be fixed. Switched from one fastcgi implementation to another.
