I'm running across a problem developing a site locally using OS X 10.10 and MAMP Pro 3.0.5 with PHP 5.5.10. Accessing both the site front-end and the back-end admin interface is throwing an error 500 Internal Server Error.
The MAMP Apache log is showing multiple instances of the following error:
[Mon Nov 10 14:03:04 2014] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] FastCGI: comm with server "/Applications/MAMP/fcgi-bin/php5.5.10.fcgi" aborted: idle timeout (30 sec), referer: http://jtp.dev:8888/admin/entries/project [Mon Nov 10 14:03:04 2014] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server "/Applications/MAMP/fcgi-bin/php5.5.10.fcgi", referer: http://jtp.dev:8888/admin/entries/project
Once this happens, I can't continue working until I restart my machine. Restarting my Mac and restarting MAMP fixes the error temporarily, but it eventually reappears and prevents me from being able to view the site locally.
Has anyone got any ideas about what may be causing this?
