500 Server Error
« on: May 24, 2010, 02:04:03 am »
I keep gettin gthis message as the site crashes:

''500 Server Error
A misconfiguration on the server caused a hiccup. Check the server logs, fix the problem, then try again. URL: http://www.freesangha.com/forums/index.php''

It happens when posting or sending a message.

I then need to reload the previous page before it will let me post/send again.

Weird.

For some weeks I've had to reload and post a second time when the first try failed.  At least now it's telling me what the error is.

Anyone else having problems?  If so - is there a fix?

I think our hosting provider is running some kind of annual maintenance. I remember that about one year ago I had the same problems, that the sever went down and up again like a yo-yo. I just checked a page where they post system status updates and it said: 2010-05-24 03:03:18: Server updated to use Apache 2.2.15 and PHP 5.2.13. That time stamp was a few minutes ago. Unfortunately they're not courteous enough to tell us these kind of things in advance.

Stop feeding the Gremlins after midnight Yeshe.  And whatever you do, don't let them come into contact with water, lest they multiply and start bothering my connection.

Maintenance would make sense.

I also have a PC which is possessed by the demon 'BT' which requires to be fed with pound coins and in return promises not to pull me through the screen into the ninth Bhumi at a speed of 20Meg.

Last time the BT Priest called, it was to fix an outside wire (no charge) and 'while I'm here, I'll update your master socket' (bill for £169 arrived for a £5 socket).

I have exorcised this demon 'BT' and in spite of its repeated screams for food, it eventually slouched off  into the distance to be reborn. ;)

That is what they call themselves. ;)

Users often attach other names to the B****   T*******    service, now thankfully de-nationalised but still in charge of engineering.

500 Server Error

A misconfiguration on the server caused a hiccup. Check the server logs, fix the problem, then try again.

Is this the one you meant?

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

I was just stuck in a 500-error loop for several minutes.  Something must be up with the server.

I hope you didn't close the page, because it is the prize! You're supposed to print it and frame it.  :teehee:

I completely lost all conact with FS last night  - gave up after an hour, yet I could read it on my mobile phone later on.  Weird.

After severe withdrawal symptoms I felt the need to delete both my dogs for exhibiting digestive disturbances, and suspend my wife's account pending further investigation of her slanderous accusation that I was a sad git.  :wacky:
