FastCGI 'idle'?

I’m trying to run a Ruby on Rails application. I’ve set up a couple before, but this one requires rmagick (and all the fun that comes with getting that up and running), The application runs fine from script/console, but when I try to access it from the web, I get:

[Wed Jan 03 11:53:03 2007] [error] [client X.X.X.X] FastCGI: comm with (dynamic) server “[home]/[site]/public/dispatch.fcgi” aborted: (first read) idle timeout (60 sec)
[Wed Jan 03 11:53:03 2007] [error] [client X.X.X.X] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server “[home]/[site]/public/dispatch.fcgi”

in the http/error.log

the application’s logs are empty. Any ideas on how I can troubleshoot this?


Did you find a solution to this problem? I’m having the same one.

Thanks in advance,


I ended up re-installing the application in another directory, and it still didn’t work. As strange as it seems, I tried running Webrick in production mode, and then FastCGI seemed to work fine after Webrick was shut down.
