    server

    I agree with John (since we're troubleshooting by committe ) in that it looks like php errors vice DNS. I keep multiple pages of the forum open and only experiance this issue on individual threads, not the whole site.

    It appears two or more people can't hit the same post/thread at the same time. I just posted and now cannot access my post at all. Although I got the error the instant I hit Submit Reply, it appears my post still went through.

    Ok, after waiting a bit I can now access the post.

    Computers are so unbelievably stupid. They make fairly decent game platforms though.

    I believe I first noticed it late in Feb. It does seem to be getting worse.

    I don't get a DNS error, instead I get an "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error". When I turn off the default IE "friendly error messages", I get the following detailed error message:

    Server Error

    The following error occurred: [code=SERVER_RESPONSE_CLOSE] The server closed the connection while reading the response. Contact your system administrator.




    <HR>Please contact the administrator.


    As with others, it only occurs with specific threads and I don't get errors accessing the main forum page. For me, I just started noticing this in the past week or two. I do know that Ann upgraded PHP in this time as part of getting the new photo gallery up and running and it may be related to this (I hope not).

    Don,

    PHP isn't writing out anything but the page header for certain threads, but not always failing on those threads. This thread is an example as it only let me access it by going directly to the last post. Would you check the vBulletin site for problem reports and patches? I don't have my password to that site handy. Too many d**n passwords.

    Ann can look into the PHP side.

    John

    The forum has been updated to the most current version and patches for the past couple of weeks. The vBulletin forum does not report any recent incidents similar to what we are experiencing. Doing a search on that forum for "internal server error" resulted in this reply:


    This error is most likely from an apache module called mod_security, which severly limits vBulletins operation. Your host will either need to configure mod_security to allow vBulletins operation or remove it.

    It wouldn't work at all in that case.

    I don't know if this means anything, but I started getting the same error on a testbed forum on the lansingheritage.org domain. What's interesting is that this forum currently has only two members and no posts. I was the only one on line on that forum and I still got the "internal server error".

    Yea, well now the "problem" has occurred trying to Reply.

    Got the reply all typed-in, ready to go and WHACK! I tried it twice over the course of a half-hour, same Thread (Timing Alignment) and no-one else seemed to be doing anything there. Pretty discouraging, because the reply text is lost...

    Geez Bo, your post would have started a flame war anyway...

    This problem, I am back on this thread topic, is becoming a PITA. I have blown off reading and responding a couple of times... on second thought that may be for the better.

    Could always try the old PHP and see if that fixes the problem.

    http://bugs.php.net/bugstats.php lists php bugs.

    Actually something is crashing
