Plugging your error into Google gave this up:

"what does " exit signal File size limit exceeded (25)" mean and how do

"I had the same problem, and in my case the problem was caused by
php3-error.log hitting the 2GB limit set by the ext2 filesystem, so
after clearing (or rather rotating) the log the problem went away.
(php was trying to write to a file which was allready (sic) max. size
thus the OS returned the 'File size limit exceeded' error.)"

This may not be your exact problem, but log files are a source of this
type errors.  Give them a look.
