    I have a ubuntu server which hosts several sites one of which is a site is not working.

    When accessing the url it gives an internal 500 error.

    I had a look at the log for this particular site and it shows the errors:

    104 Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid error reading data from FASTCGI server
    Premature end of script headers: index.php

    Not sure where to even start with this as its only this site.

    Hope some can assist

    The error means that php process dies unexpectedly, this can be a php coding error. If the site is written in php, then you should checks its syntax, e.g. with:

    find /var/www/domain.tld/web -name "*.php" -exec php -l {} \; | grep -v 'No syntax e'

    (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
    Premature end of script headers: index.php

    Any ideas?
