I am getting a 500 error occasionally, and it is becoming more frequent. Looking in the apache error log, I find the following.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to discovering the cause of the problem?

Are you sure you're looking in the right error_log? –  Michael Hampton Apr 15 at 0:15
    
No, I am not very good at server admin, but as it seems that the SIGKILL is related to the 500 error. Can you point me in a better direction? –  Ben Apr 15 at 0:30
