Using Local on OSX 10.14.* and PHP >= 7.41 produce 503 errors

Issue Summary

Using Local on OSX 10.14.*, PHP >= 7.41 produce 503 errors at random. PHP Error logs state these PHP builds were built for OSX 11.0 or greater.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Are there builds of 8.1.9 that are built for OSX 10.14?
  • Are there settings in PHP INI for 8.1.9 that would assist in reducing the 503 errors? This site works under 7.3.5 and 7.4 (flywheel’s current state).


php-fpm.log states:

System Details

  • Local Version
    php-fpm.log (2.8 KB)
    6.4.3 have been tested.

  • Operating System (OS) Apple OSX 10.14.6

I’m having the exact same issue, same OSX version and Local version, same 503 errors.

Hi @nic! Can you provide your Local Log here? Retrieving Local’s Log File

Keep us posted and we’d be happy to help further!

It shows up in the PHP fpm log. The 503 error is random when generated in the browser (not the error log file) and this is when the warnings appears in the attached log when using PHP > 7.3.5. Some Local sites work fine, but at random they will produce the 503 error.

Thank you @nic! We will take a further look at this.

@nic and @jpwebdev

I’ve relayed this to the Local Dev team and learned that we have not compiled PHP 8.1.9 for that version of macOS. It is unlikely that this will be done due to the age of 10.14 and nearly reaching it’s EOL.

We also don’t believe there to be any settings that would assist in reducing the errors since this seems like a compilation issue.

If you have any other questions or concerns regarding this let us know!
