Need to know what file is being called when this error happens. Should be in the error line. If it is a PHP script it could be a Memory limit. If it is a perl/cgi script then it could be a path to perl issue.

More then likely you are hitting a limit set on processes by your account. Heavy traffic can cause this, poorly written scripts etc.

The only site I have running is a forum (vbulletin) om a reselleraccount.
I don't believe that this script is having a lot of traffic

Have you seen the stats on this forum when you visit. :) It always has tons of people visiting it each time I visit. "There are currently 139 users online. 45 members and 94 guests". That is what is showing at the moment. I am the only real user I think. They are all a bunch of spammers. Just because legit traffic may not be high it does not mean that it is not busy.
