Interesting.  Maybe the 500 "error" isn't really an error.  Maybe some superior being is trying to tell me to get a life and stop spending so much time on the Buddha boards. LOL

I had a nice chat with a customer support representative and what he essentially said was that he knew that the technicians had been working on the server all week, but that they don't bother to let anyone know about neither planned downtime nor unplanned problems. It might be that we will change our hosting provider in the near future...

I wish I still had the 500 server error.  I now keep getting one which stops me accesssing the site althgether so am offline quite a lot:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.



This again looks like server problems.

Did someone say they were fixing the server, seems to me quite the opposite is happening!

Yeah, we're pretty fed up with it. We're looking into what options we have to move the forums to another host.

It's getting bad   :tantrum: 

Nearly every other time I try to log in I get an error.  Maybe every third time.

So I wait a while, then it works again.  I hope we solve it soon.

However we can help Wonky, let us know.

Best,
Laura

In the case of the dreaded http 500 error, there isn't much we mere mortals/users can do.

The error means that there is something gone haywire on the web server.  Out of our control.

There's a bunch of things that can that can trigger a 500 error from the server itself being responsive but hung up on a process, to an internal network issue.  Getting a 500 error doesn't mean that the server is down it just means something is wrong with it.

That said, I've been getting very slow response times or no response at all - a blank screen - for a few days now.

Had one just a few minutes ago, in fact.

Have you seen the new improved model of error?  :

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.


It's much more effective than the older 500 error model and can leave a user helpless for half an hour or more. A vast improvement, I'm sure you'll agree.  It even stopped SMF from connecting, and he's a really persistent little beggar.

If you're not able to receive this new and improved error model you may need to upgrade your widget interface settings.

The site has been very very slow for me all day and Chat died quite a few times in the last hour or so.

Not sure why.
