Check CHMOD in var/cache/prod

I encounter exact the same problem but checking the CHMOD didn't do anything (I run on ea apache php72)

Would be good if Prestashop would supply a list with the exact PHP configuration needed. Since there are dozens of PHP packages available and each version applied throws some different error, it's a MAZE run to install Preastashop.

Installed OpenCart yesterday and was done within 5 minutes.

Prestashop caused me to waste an entire day together with my server guys, trying to figure out what the heck is missing.

Had the same problem with server's error log "mod_fcgid: read timeout from pipe".

Google led me to "https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7199440/fread-timeout-with-mod-fcgid-read-timeout-from-pipe".

The recommended fix did work for me without further investigation of these timeouts...
