Upgrade error with mod_fcgid

I have a OJS setup currently running fine, under PHP 5.6. I want to update both OJS and PHP (to 7.4, already installed and working); I tried earlier today, but couln’t get it to run; after I follow the steps to update, when try to access the site I get a HTTP 500 error, and in the logs I see:

[Mon Jan 04 19:48:41.358748 2021] [fcgid:warn] [pid 12567:tid 139688247322368] (104)Connection reset by peer: [client ] mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
[Mon Jan 04 19:48:41.359838 2021] [core:error] [pid 12567:tid 139688247322368] [client ] End of script output before headers: index.php

I just can’t get it to run. Any ideas?

This sounds like it may be a server configuration issue, rather than something specific to OJS. There are some suggestions in this thread on Stack Overflow.

Hi @Orlando_Alonzo,

It possible that you’re looking at the Apache error log, but that PHP error logs are getting recorded somewhere else. I’d suggest checking to see if there’s another log file that contains more information.

It was a problem with the PHP installation.
