I decided to try out TYPO3 6.2 today and after the installation I kept getting a timeout error when trying to access the Extension Manager module. In Chrome this showed up as “Error 103 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_ABORTED)”. Apparently I wasn’t the only one with a XAMPP installation that got this bug so I decided to post it.
The solution is to add these lines in your httpd.conf file:
<IfModule mpm_winnt_module> ThreadStackSize 8388608 </IfModule>
Don’t forget to restart Apache. After that, the Extension Manager should work fine.
