Server problem?

Wed Sep 09, 2009 3:55 pm

Within the last 3 weeks I've been having trouble accessing various areas of the forum. My browser will start to access the site but I'll get the following message,
"A 50x server error was received attempting to serve your request, indicating that either the server is currently unable to handle the request or the request timed out waiting for a response. The error may have been due to a temporary issue and therefore you could try to access the web address again."

Is this a problem on my end or an issue with the Farmall Cub server?

I have been getting similar messages. I think it must be the server.

As Don suggested, it is quite possible/probably that the server does have intermittent problems. I have noticed a number of time out/SQL errors and fetch request errors lately also. But it may also be something as simple as one of the nodes between your modem and the server that is causing the time out. Usually these resolve themselves after a refresh or two. If not it may take a bit longer.

In either case, it would not be a problem with your computer. It is a networking issue. If you can access other sites, then most likely server related. If you have problems accessing a few other sites, it could be a node somewhere.
