"Internal Server Error" happening more often.

Internal Server Error. This is usually caused by a timeout being exceeded, which can occur for a number of reasons - typically on file uploads taking longer than forty seconds. If you were trying to upload an exceptionally large file, you may want to contact me so I can upload it directly instead. Otherwise, it could just be a deadlock or randomness - just wait about a minute and try again. If it persists, please contact me at vekseid@elliquiy.com with details.

It's happened at least six times in the past week or so - not sure why. Usually, it fixes itself almost immediately afterwards, but thought I would let you know in case it was important.

Edit: In case it's important, I use Firefox 3.0.15 on Windows Vista. I've encountered this error both at school, and at home. And, as I mentioned below, I've never gotten this error while attempting to upload any files on Elliquiy - only while browsing/surfing the forums.

I have never seen this at E, but then I don't move large files about, only upload small images to the Wiki. I wonder if its caused by a local traffic problem at your end Caeli?

EDIT: To clarify. I don't mean your PC or necessarily your connection but somewhere a hop or two away towards the Elliquiy server maybe?

I have never gotten this error while attempting to upload any files on Elliquiy - only while surfing normally.

Okay, the quoted error message gives the uploading of files as a possible reason but that's clearly not the case here.

There are a number of broken queries in SMF that are fixed in the next release (which I hope to move too soon). Ultimately though, we're hitting our dinky excuse for a RAID really, really hard at times : /

Just as a note so Caeli doesn't feel alone. I just had one of those SMF errors too. I am also on Mozilla/Vista.

I've installed the latest release on a few sites for people, its running smooth so far.

Edit: none of those sites are a large as E though.

The blogs, ons and offs, emulator, etc. all depend on code that changed slightly in RC2 so it will be a bit : )

I got the error as well when trying to preview post I make. :/ I have to sometimes post them then check them, go back and modify them to correct things.

I'm also using the latest version of firefox. Thinking of switching to chrome though.

I came across this error message as well, just once, though, when I wanted to change my Avatar.

Despite the lower posting rate, people are spending more time reading. The load on the server has gone up by about 20% over the past month. : /

I've encountered this problem as well, though it is usually right after making a post. I click the post button, IE spends a considerable ammount of time loading, then 'Internal Server Error' pops up.
 
Luckily, the post is still made, but it isn't recognized that I made it. (Shows up as new in my bookmarks)
