Error 500

Post by Andy »

Hello all,

Most of you will have found you were presented with an Error 500 during the night. This is a recurring problem so I am going to find a fix for it today (maybe include a taskkill php.exe in the 10 minute cron job).

I apologise if you were unable to access the sites during the last 10 hours or so.

I implemented this fix today.

At every 10 minutes beginning on the hour, a cron job will run that ends all php.exe tasks. This will solve the recurring error 500 problem.

However...

If you try to change page as the cron runs, and the php task running your query is ended, you will get an error 500, but a simple page refresh will fix the issue.

If this becomes too much of a problem, I might change it to run every 30 minutes or 1 hour.

Note: This will also affect uploading images on the image uploader. This is what is drawing me to run it every 30 minutes instead.

We shall see...
