Thoughts on if this is a problem with the server or an opportunity to tweak MyBB settings to fix the issue. Server logs show a 500 error code and the following:

How many concurrent users does your site have when these errors are appearing? Your host may be limiting the number of simultaneous PHP processes, and lots of active users = lots of processes to handle the requests (And the error is thrown if a new one can't be started).
Look at your error log to see what is causing the problem.
Confirmed its a server issue. Nothing to do with MyBB. Thanks for replies.
