    Why am I getting this error?
    (11)Resource temporarily unavailable: couldn't spawn child process:

    php scripts are giving 500 errors and the error log shows:
    (11)Resource temporarily unavailable: couldn't spawn child process:

    Nothing appears to be written to swap:
    # free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 1991 1958 32 0 112 1526
    -/+ buffers/cache: 320 1671
    Swap: 4094 0 4093

    Is this bad?

    Your server load is so high it cant spawn a process for the command you are running.
