Web configurator dying



  • Hello,

    I have installed pfSense-LiveCD-2.1-RC0-amd64-20130725-1629.iso into vmware fusion Version 3.1.4 (683826).  I have also installed an image a couple of weeks ago in vmware fusion 5 on a completely different system.  Here is the problem:

    1. during the setup wizard, the webconfigurator stops responding.
    2. at odd, (non-reproducable levels), the web configurator stops responding.

    the only fix is to restart the web configurator at the command line.

    Here are the relevent lines in the system.log file:

    Jul 26 11:55:35 pfSense lighttpd[10530]: (mod_fastcgi.c.2543) unexpected end-of-file (perhaps the fastcgi process died): pid: 0 socket: unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket-1 
    Jul 26 11:55:35 pfSense kernel: pid 977 (php), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
    Jul 26 11:55:35 pfSense lighttpd[10530]: (mod_fastcgi.c.3329) response not received, request sent: 837 on socket: unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket-1 for /index.php?, closing connection 
    
    

    Almost all of the logs in /var/log appear to be binary, including the lighttpd.log file, so I can't really discern more about the problem.  If there is a php debug mode I can operate in, I can send more feedback.
