Internal Server Error

Post by lingrem » Sun Jul 21, 2013 6:13 pm

I don't know if anyone else has been getting this, but the last few days I keep hitting an "Internal Server Error" which is annoying, but only requires I go back and retry clicking.

This is the specific message:
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache Server at www.goblinsforum.com Port 80

Yup. I've been getting it occasionally as well, though a simple refresh of the page is often enough to solve the problem though.

More worrying perhaps is that the problem seems to start becoming more and more common.

Been happening to me on and off for a long time now. As others have said, a simple refresh does the trick, so I haven't been too worried about it.

ETA: Happened to me when I tried to post this message. Of course.

The most likely explanation is that the server is now overburdened because both the comic and forum are hosted on it. We'll talk to Duke to see what we can do about that.
I am one of the forum admins and chat moderators. Drop any of us a line if you ever need a hand in either the forum or the chat.

Well, the same server handels Goblinscomic, and it's update time.
I blame the "refreshers" who want to be the first to post the new discussion thread.
And those who are desperate to get their Goblinscomic fix.

(Err, yes, I blame myself with that. Twice!)

And I saw 75 people online...
