Today, at least, I never managed with the refresh to post after the error.

And going back the text IS there, but somehow the post button does nothing. So, refresh, paste, post. 500. Repeat.  :wall:


Edit: F5 just worked now after the error... It all seems so... random.

Last time I contacted Dreamhost they suggested upgrading the php version we are using to see if that would fix the problems.

I didn't really want to do this in case it causes other things to break but they said I can change it back if it doesn't work.

I have just done it a few minutes ago, so now we wait and see what happens... :crossed:

I'm not very optimistic, especially since I already received a completely different error message (Method Not Implemented) when trying to post in this topic.  :hmm:

Sylvia, could you perhaps also change the forum to a secure https connection?

Thank you for going to all the trouble.

I didn't get that new error, but just got a 500 one... :wall:

I`m really fed up now with this "internal server error" message, for the onethousandeleventh time I had to try 3 times (closing the homepage and starting a new window) before I could log in on the forum.  :hissyfit:

It is annoying indeed...

Problem is, it's so random, I have no idea what could be wrong... and how to track it to fix it :(

That is annoying! Maybe it depends on which browser you use, but I find just refreshing the page sorts the problem out, on both Safari and Firefox.

Still sending messages to the support team to try and get this mess sorted.

To make matters worse, I just noticed the photo album link no longer works.
Most likely because of the recent change to the php setting.
Will try and put that right as soon as I can.
