    one site went down with error 503.

    The logs said "can't apply slot for fcgi-starter"

    It is a busy site with 3000 uniques a day, 20 pages per unique and complex PHP pages with multiple DB connections, etc.

    I'm using ISPConfig3 (latest version) on debian 6, apache 2.2 (Falko's perfect server how-to)

    1- where is the conf file for fastCGI located?
    2- what to change in the file to prevent the site going down again?

    Thank you!

    /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts and in the apache vhost file.

    Please post the output of:

    ls -la /usr/sbin/suexec*

    And please post the complete error messages from the error.log of the site, there are most likely other messages logged together with this error.

    Thank you

    I nuked the error log, because the file was huge.
    But the same line just got repeated over and over, there was only that error.

    ls -la /usr/sbin/suexec outputs "no such file or directory"
