If you don't do anything with the core dumps (besides deleting them),
then there are none.

Core dumps (or rather, "segmentation violations" that lead to core
dumps being created) are usually caused by one of the following:

- bug in code (in this case PHP's code)

- flaky hardware, often bad RAM

Check out the system log and/or dmesg to see if any conspicuous
kernel messages (aside from the usual "pid ... exited on signal 11")
appear.
