I am new to this forum and wordpress so I apologize if I am already breaking any rules.
I have an issue with WP 3.9 and AWS t1.micro instance LAMP server running MySQL 5.5.36. Completely fresh/clean install. I just created the instance today and installed WP today. There are no additional themes and plugins on this installation. I followed the AWS LAMP server and WP install instructions word for word. (perhaps that was the issue?)
I am unable to access: Themes, Plugins and Updates,
Basically I get an error page in chrome:
Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE
The connection was reset
I tried the recommended renaming of the themes and plugins dirs. This works and I am then able to access the pages. However of course I would rather like to be able to have themes and plugins so when I add the directories back in I get the same error.(permissions appear OK?)
Please note. I have another AWS t1micro instance running WP 3.8.3 with MySQL 5.5.34. I have not had any issues there......
Does anyone have any suggestions. Should I downgrade MySQL?
