I have Magento 1.9 website with PHP 5.6.31 running on Windows IIS. Intermittently the website would have server 500 error, and more than 20 PHP CGI/FastCGI background processes running. The website will recover if its application pool restarted. I found there was Application Error in Event Viewer when the server 500 error first happened.
