While debugging a notorious 500 internal server error, we found by accessing error logs that the default timeout for FastCGI was 40 seconds.  This was causing timeout faults on a number of apache processes.

These related log entries were found in the apache error log:

[Wed Jun 25 12:25:53 2014] [warn] [client 198.255.231.10] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 40 seconds, referer: https://www.blahblah.com/avenger/searches
[Wed Jun 25 12:25:53 2014] [error] [client 198.255.231.10] Premature end of script headers: index.php, referer: https://www.blahblah.com/avenger/searches
[Wed Jun 25 12:26:00 2014] [warn] mod_fcgid: process 3831 graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL

Research disclosed that this error on WHM/Cpanel/CentOS servers were the result of using EasyApache to install the Apache server. 
The fix is well know although it may be somewhat cryptic to implement.
