Cannot allocate memory: couldn't spawn child


I get this error a lot in apache1 error_log. Refreshing the website usually makes it work though. I think it has something to do with PHP, because it happens on several php programs

"Cannot allocate memory: couldn't spawn child"

Here is a part of the log:
