Cheers for the answer. Since writing this question I've changed jobs so I can't verify, but I'd be interested to hear if anyone else can fix the problem in this way.

comment Is greylisting still an efficient method for preventing spam?
@HopelessN00b Our CEO is not like that. I wouldn't be judging someone's personality or behaviour based solely on their profession.

@Andrew Probably. You wouldn't get a Signal-Noise Ratio most likely, but I would guess it can still show attenuation so you can determine whether the line is bad.

OK. I've reached the limit of my knowledge in that area then. Good luck!

"mod_fcgid sports better control over spawning processes and error detection. mod_fastcgi has been around longer. Both support suEXEC, and both separate PHP from Apache, thus allowing Apache to run threaded workers if desired." Essentially the same, but try fastcgi.so if you want.

A lot of ADSL modem firmware will have info about the attenuation and signal strength of the line when you bring up the status page. That's a quick solution, but you may be after more advanced or additional metrics.

Try setting some memory-related options for FastCGI: PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS=5000 PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN=8 or similar.

No worries :) It may also be at /var/log/apache2/error.log, actually.
