Your system log says:

/kernel: swap_pager_getswapspace: failed
/kernel: pid 56314 (php), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space

Looks like you're running out of memory, even though you have 64 MB
(which is usually enough). You could try adding more memory (if
possible) and see if the problem persists, but that's probably only a
stopgap measure. The best thing would be to run "truss" on the port
8001 mini_httpd process to find out what makes it die. You can get a
compiled FreeBSD 4.11 version of truss at
