Quick way to see why some site is experiencing 5xx error is:

Code: Select all

grep 'Fatal' /var/log/apache2/domains/YOURDOMAIN.COM.error.log
If we see:

Code: Select all

[Tue Oct 04 01:20:00.425656 2022] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 26104:tid 140062074345216] [client] AH01067: Failed to read FastCGI header, referer:
[Tue Oct 04 01:20:00.425674 2022] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 26104:tid 140062074345216] (104)Connection reset by peer: [client] AH01075: Error dispatching request to : , referer:
Error dispatching indicates that problem is probably in the request_terminate_timeout value (value from pool.d conf file) or process died because of some internal PHP error.

So for more information we should inspect /var/log/phpX.X-fpm.log - see this tutorial -> viewtopic.php?f=18&t=752

Other reason can be reaching the maximum execution time:

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/username/web/ on line 179'
In that case you can increase both max_execution_time and request_terminate_timeout by following this tutorial: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=54

Other reason can be memory_limit:

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 20480 bytes) in /home/username/web/ on line 1653
In order to prevent this error, we should increase value for memory_limit.

Here you can read more about where and how to do that: viewtopic.php?p=172#p172
