mod_fcgid timeout issue -

I have a strange problem that has popped up since a bit of a server melt down earlier (linked to a runaway perl script)

anyways, since then I am getting this error message appearing in my logs for just one domain - when I access it’s CMS:

[Tue Dec 16 17:00:16 2008] [warn] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 31 seconds
[Tue Dec 16 17:00:16 2008] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: login.php, referer:

All my other virtual servers have exactly the same CMS installed, but only on this one virtual server do I get the error above. I have changed the Maximum PHP script run time to a higher value to no avail - I actually can’t see this being the problem, as I do not have the same problem on another virtual server with exactly the same setup.

Any way mod_fcgid could become corrupted for this one virtual server?

Try increasing the memory available for this virtual server. That’s set in the relevant php.ini for the virtual server in /home/domainname/etc.

I tried this, and this didnt work.

The interesting thing is that I have multiple vmin virtual servers running exactly the same files, and they work fine. As far as I can see there is no difference between the virtual servers.

I also found this in my searching…maybe relevant?

Well for one reason or another (which I can’t quite put my finger on) everything is back to normal.

Thanks for your help Joe, I’ll certainly be keeping my eye on this to see if it was me just being totally stupid, or if indeed it was the FCGId wrapper.

Anyways, all good again,
