Question: safari can't open the page because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection

This has started happening for most wordpress.com blogs I try to view. They load fine in Firefox and Chrome but in Safari I get 'safari can't open the page because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection'. I have Safari 6.1.2. I've tried deleting cookies.plist from my Library, emptying the cache and restarting; no joy. Any suggestions please?

Tried numerous solutions in settings from network to proxy and pasting in Terminal box and many more, nothing worked. I finally found one that said to disable any type of anti virus software and I disabled Kisparsky and Bingo , My Mac is Back. Please pass along this may help someone else.

The only solution that worked for me was changing Apache server configuration of the <virtualhost> that was failing, by increasing the amount of time the server should wait for subsequent requests on a persistent connection, using the following directive:


KeepAliveTimeout 15

By default it's 5, which made it fail all the time.

Having worked in ICT-Security, I fret a great deal about people suggesting turning off or removing anti-virus software. These would be exactly the suggestions that virus-spreaders, malware purveyors etc would make.


No good solution can begin by suggesting removing security protections.
