Ensure you have LogLevel set to into in main Apache configuration. If
you have separate LogLevel settings for main Apache server and
VirtualHost, make sure both are set and look at error logs for both
main Apache server and VirtualHost. See:

Generally not a problem. Although if the client was actually
prematurely killed, can also indicate a network issue in between.

This error is more serious. Have had some discussion about this in the
