Have been getting a lot of 500 errors, contacted host and their answer is below. Please advise.
Thank you for contacting HostGator.
It looks like some of your index.fcgi processes are not closing properly, which is causing the process to get killed and cause the 500 errors.

The processes do not seem to be doing anything, based on connecting to it with an strace.

I would recommend getting with your developer to see why the processes are hanging open.
