Frequent passenger internal server error. Help!

I keep getting a screen that says “The application spawner server exited unexpectedly”

Here’s a screenshot:

Interesting point of note: while the page usually takes 5-15 second to show up, on the times you get this error, which happens at random, it appears immediately. As stated in my other thread, I definitely need to clean up my code as it’s quite messy, but if anyone has any thoughts on what exactly could be causing this error so I can be sure to tackle it, I’d be much obliged.


Just a thought – what does your mem. usage look like?

usually it hovers around 40-45mb, but I’ve had a few spikes where it goes over 64mb. I know this from watching it locally and on another host, but do you know how I’d keep track of this on dreamhost?

I am getting the same errors. Anybody found a solution?
