Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a django website deployed on a shared webhost. The shared webhost uses fastcgi.
I'm noticing that valid urls will randomly throw up http404 but as soon as I refresh will work again.
does anyone know why this may be?

* Update * Sys admins have culled logs for me and I think the following logs are examples of what is being generated by the issue:

Mon Oct 03 12:53:37 2011] [warn] [client my ip] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server, referer: valid url on site
[Mon Oct 03 12:53:37 2011] [error] [client my ip] Premature end of script headers: fs.fcgi, referer: valid url on site

all my googling only turned up issues that should always happen. not random, sporadic occurrences.
any suggestions?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

do you have access to logs ? – ascobol Oct 3 '11 at 20:14
