I upgraded to 3gb ram and now memory isn't an issue according to free
-m (i.e. no swapping).  I was still having problems (i.e. 500 errors
with no error log entries).  I tried high traffic mode with MaxServers
20 but then Googlebot came and grabbed about 5000 pages and got about
5000 internal server (500) errors ... this in essence killed my
traffic for the past couple weeks.  So I tried simply switching to low
traffic mode and both orders and googlebot seem to be doing OK
(Googlebot grabbed over 25,000 pages today).  So for now I'll stay
with this I guess!  Thanks for everyone's help.


p.s. I posted about 'what is rpc mode'  ... does anyone have detailed
references about what low, high and rpc mode are and what all of their
configs mean?
