I think I've broken ARRSE - sorry

#1
I was trying to reply to a thread, including a few photos. I've been successful doing this where the photos were from the web, but these were from my hard drive.

I had a go using the icon in the reply page but it didn't seem to work very happily, previewing the post didn't show the photos (is this a function of attaching photos?), so I resorted to opening the photos in an editing program and copy/pasting them into the reply text. After a few attempts, involving resizing the photos, the preview looked ok so I clicked Submit".

The submission was taking quite a long time i.e. the page didn't reload, so I opened another Firefox window to see if the message had gone through, thinking that the already-open Firefox had stalled. I could open other threads but not the one I replied to.

I opened Chrome, went to the thread and received this message:

Server error

The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.arrse.co.uk/military-his...any-ideas-locating-grandad-india-1940s-2.html. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here are some suggestions:



HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

I'm very sorry that i've broken the site. I've tried to delete the reply by going back through the pages but it still won't stop.


And while I'm at it, what's the default text size and font?

Have you got your glasses on?

I have but they're bifocals. The bottom bit focuses from about 150mm to 300mm, the top focuses from 600mm to infinity.

The laptop screen is 450mm away.

Walking down stairs can be a bit scary.

I try not to do that.

Serves you right for all this posh business on your computer. As you know, my laptop is pink, I push the On button, and it works. I have no idea what else it can do though. It's probably got some really clever stuff on it, but I'm an IT biff. ARRSE, FB, E-mails, Google, shopping. Then more shopping. No games (unless it's Popmaster with Ken Bruce on FB). I've got a Gameboy with Tetris on it - why would I need games?

If the site shows a 500 error, it's shafted for the time being, and if it was caused by something that you did, then it is double shafted, and would have shat itself at some point anyway

At his age, he wouldn't notice.

And again, both times trying to read "the granda" thread mention in the OP

The website cannot display the page
HTTP 500
Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error.
Oh oh, you're in trouble.

Did you sign for it?

PHP has a script execution time set in the php.ini file - it means that for whatever reason, usually the server is under heavy load, and cannot process your request within the time limit and gives up. It's to prevent the server getting under even heavier load by ******* off anything it can't handle rather than the queue getting longer

I clicked on OK and nothing happened. Have I broken that as well?
Yes, it's all your fault!
Just you wait and see what happens to you when the CO's get in!

Seems ok for me i can get on it just fine?
No you can't. At best, you'll get the first 14 posts. My reply comes after that, inferred as being page 2, even though I've got ARRSE set to 40 posts per page, so I should see it as page 1.

I'm in trouble, aren't I? Still, if I get banned, at least I'll get to bed at a reasonable time...

Yeah your right you have well and truly fucked it.

Tripe. The trouble's been caused by the cane toad fumes on Ord_Sgt's breath, plus some other ratbag raving about scrotum goblins. Even the ARRSE servers can only tolerate so much weirdness at once.

I'm guessing from the time that you hit a backup period and the site was just overloaded. We're not yet sophisticated enough to do truly slick backups, so in the early hours of every morning the simple and automated (ie. great) Amazon backup system kills the site for a short period while a database backup is made.
