We've been having some problems with a flash based file uploader. While it started up very fast at uploading files lately it has been slowing down and throwing out Internal Server Error 500. Also, we have been getting this error with our other sites as well when loading pages from the MYSQL database. We recently upgraded our server to Ubuntu 9.10 We have also made some changes to our php.ini and apache.conf files hoping to eliminate this error. It seems like it's a problem with the process timing out. The server an AMD X3 processor, 8gigs of ram 1 terabyte of hard drive space in raid 5 and barely breaks a sweat during the day. PHP version 5.2.10 The slowness might be caused by our ISP. However, we would like to eliminate the Internal 500 errors on our sites.
