File Uploads And 500 Errors

Rails community,

I have been trying to diagnose some sporadic “Rails application failed
to
start properly” errors, and this is what I have been able to determine.
I
am running on a shared server on site5, apache w/ FastCGI. When my
application is running, it is only using 1 dispatch.fcgi process until I
upload a picture. At that point, between 3-4 more dispatch.fcgi
processes
are spawned and the 500 errors are being caused as these extra processes
slowly die off. So, now my couple of questions. What causes these
additional processes to be spawned? What causes the process to die?
Has
anyone been able to solve this problem? Thanks for any help!
