Your friend the Internal Server Error

Here’s a helpful hint: when you post and receive an Internal Server Error message, your post still goes through four or five seconds later. No need to try again.

Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator, [email protected] 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.

Yup I found that out the hard way…

People are still getting these? I have not been getting them myself. If you do get them, please let me know for what message. You can just reply in this thread.


I still, am least once or twice a week.

I get them about once a day myself. Same message as above. Generally early morning my time, so maybe 3-4am EST.

Yeah, I get them frequently myself. I always just think that the server must be overloaded because it’s doing some internal reorganizations or something…

I got a couple of those late last night, but it was the first time in months.

Just got one a minute ago, over in the Nomo Discussion thread when I posted to respond to shift6’s nothingness with some nothingness of my own. As usual, got the error, but post when through.

Again, please let me know what post. If you can link to the post it would be appreciated.


I get this when visiting the site, not when posting. Reload brings up the site though.

chet, sorry for skipping the details. I received the error when submitting this post.

This post

Got one just now posting the baby monkey picture.

Got one posting the baby bugs : Fri Jun 03, 2005 5:52 pm

Got one this minute just checking It’s not limited to posting.

And then got one trying to post the above!

Got one on too, which renders the “View posts since last visits button” unusable :(

Yeah I was getting them all over the place last night. Didnt really seem to be any rhyme or reason either. Just random.

I got:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Server at Port 80

when trying to post this the first time. I don’t know if it’s related.

I just now tried to make an unfunny joke in the 3am:Nintendogs thread and I got the usual Error, but no post. I mean, the joke wasn’t that unfunny (for me), something about the irony of being a catass when playing Nintendogs or whatever.
