I recently upgraded my Media Temple server to dv4 and enabled FastCGI. I have this issue where the WordPress control panel on my sites goes slow. When I update or publish a post, sometimes it will hang for a little while and then give me a 500 error. I'm constantly finding these in my error logs:
[Mon Jul 30 03:32:00 2012] [warn] mod_fcgid: process 20466 graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL [Mon Jul 30 06:27:03 2012] [warn] mod_fcgid: process 22061 graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL [Mon Jul 30 09:47:57 2012] [warn] mod_fcgid: process 22232 graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL [Mon Jul 30 13:19:57 2012] [warn] mod_fcgid: process 22439 graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL
I've tried configuring my FastCGI several times, none of which seem to resolve the issue. Here is my current configuration:
LoadModule fcgid_module modules/mod_fcgid.so <IfModule mod_fcgid.c> <IfModule !mod_fastcgi.c> AddHandler fcgid-script fcg fcgi fpl </IfModule> FcgidIPCDir /var/run/mod_fcgid/sock FcgidProcessTableFile /var/run/mod_fcgid/fcgid_shm #FcgidIdleTimeout 40 #FcgidProcessLifeTime 30 FcgidProcessLifeTime 3600 FcgidIdleTimeout 3600 FcgidMaxProcesses 8 FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass 3 FcgidIOTimeout 120 FcgidInitialEnv RAILS_ENV production FcgidIdleScanInterval 10 FcgidMaxRequestsPerProcess 2000 FcgidMaxRequestLen 1000000000 </IfModule>
Another issue I've been running into recently is sometimes I cannot connect to SSH. If I leave it alone for a little while, it works again (so there were probably no available connections).
Server is with Media Temple and has 1 GB of RAM with CentOS, so it should not be experiencing issues with speed. None of the sites hosted have heavy traffic. Also, the site was working fine on Media Temple's dv 3.5 platform.
Thanks in advance for any tips or possible resolutions.
