Modx - 500 Internal Server Error

I started having issues with a Modx site that has been running flawlessly for about two months. The site started displaying a 500 server error. And reinstalls have not worked. I contacted Dreamhost and they gave me this answer:

“I’ve checked into why you’ve been receiving these internal server errors,
and it seems your scripts have been getting automatically killed by our
Process Watcher due to your sites going over Memory limits on the shared

This also came with a suggestion to delete unused plugins. I don’t have any. The site is large, but not astronomical (I believe it has about 150 pages.) Any ideas as to what’s going on? Any suggestions? At this point I can’t do anything that they suggested.


Hello, I was wondering if you ever found a solution to this problem as I am having exactly the same issue where sites have been working for ages and now I get internal errors within the manager.

Yes, I did. There was a table in the database that was corrupted. You should be able to track it down in the error log. I did a clean install and imported the ModX database without that table. I’m sorry I don’t remember many more details.
