Can't seem to get past the install screen for some reason or other... I fill in the relevant information, it starts to install then I get the OOPS screen... I looked in the log and I'm seeing the following ...

[Mon May 11 13:25:08 2015] [error] [client ::1] FastCGI: comm with server "/Applications/MAMP/fcgi-bin/php5.3.29.fcgi" aborted: idle timeout (30 sec), referer: http://travelexperience/admin/install
[Mon May 11 13:25:08 2015] [error] [client ::1] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server "/Applications/MAMP/fcgi-bin/php5.3.29.fcgi", referer: http://travelexperience/admin/install

But I have no idea what's up...


Okay I'm getting the following error in the craft log...

2015/05/11 12:48:19 [warning] [application] Skipping record /sites/travelexperience/craft/app/records/BaseRecord.php because it’s abstract or an interface.

    Have you made sure you meet the minimum server requirements? These can be found here. Alternatively you could run this tool which will check for you. Commented May 11, 2015 at 14:10
  • You're hitting a timeout. Does the answer of craftcms.stackexchange.com/questions/4661/… help to resolve this?

See this answer for how to work around the MAMP incomplete headers bug: https://craftcms.stackexchange.com/a/6573/57

The [warning] [application] Skipping record... log entry isn't an error at all and is completely normal to see during installation.
