Forum Error

Anyone else seeing this?

FastCGI Error
The FastCGI Handler was unable to process the request.

Error Details:

* The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly
* Error Number: -2147467259 (0x80004005).
* Error Description: Unspecified error

HTTP Error 500 - Server Error.
Internet Information Services (IIS)


It usually happens when logging in or attempting to access a post. Not consistent, however, being random. Maybe my browser failed its save.

I'm seeing it also and was just thinking about posting.

I'm guess this is a backend config issue. Either some setting in IIS/6.0 or perhaps the client connections to mysql. I'm not a windows guy so I think this needs to be brought up the host, checking the logs and mysql extended status should give some insight.

I see it when I try to post. So if you post anything, copy it before you submit, or you will lose it.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I've gotten it a couple of times. Usually when I post something.

I am encountering this error on both the Forum and on the TLG website. The error occurs frequently (even happened when I tried to reply!).

Wondering if the server has been hacked...

No not hacked, just pretty sure the virtual-server it was not configured to handle the added load of the forum. It is either the concurrent settings of the webserver or the max clients to the database. [The error is not helpful and someone would have to go to the actual logs or at least check the current load settings.]

There appears to have been some downtime last night and afterward, it seems to have resolved. That's good.
