process /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/web111/.php-fcgi-starter(7847) 
    exit(communication error), get unexpected signal 11

And then get 500 error.

Like the previous person said, I'm pretty sure "signal 11″ is a segmentation fault, which would seem to indicate an invalid memory access attempt. I've found the most common issues to be:

  1. Incorrect File/Folder Permissions,
  2. Bad Code, or Incorrect Syntax in the .htaccess File, or...
  3. Incorrect php.ini Configuration

There's not nearly enough information here to make any sort of determination about what's going on. All I can tell you is that signal 11 is a segmentation fault, which which indicates an invalid memory access attempt. Usually this is because of some programming error in the C code.
