Please use the FPA utility and post the report to a reply here. viewtopic.php?f=621&t=582860.

What version of 3.8.x?

I suspect it's a time-out issue and therefore a PHP setting needs to be changed, but we won't know that until you post the FPA report.

This is a commonly asked question, such as these, perhaps do some reading of the responses to find some answers.

Also check with your host and ask them to check / increase PHP settings such as memory, and time-out settings.
