500 Error for main site link


#1

@jasonstevanhill @dfabulich the main site link https://www.choiceofgames.com/ is giving a 500 error

But indirect links work fine. IE https://forum.choiceofgames.com/ (Well subdomain)

Verified through IE/Chrome/FF


#2

The website is back up again.


#3

I don’t get the 500 errors any more but the display of the site is rather broken still.


#4

Broken how? Can you post a screenshot?


#5

Hi, I’ve got the same thing. I added a screenshot for reference.

It looks a bit wonky to me :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

I think this is a temporary cache glitch. Some users have fixed it on their machines by holding the Control key and clicking the Refresh button.


#7

working fine now for me. I always hold control or stick a /? at the end of a url to force cache refresh.


#8

Sorry to revive this but I’m getting 500 “Internal Server Errors” a lot tonight.


#9

Same here. It keeps coming up as a connection issue but my connection is fine.


#10

Yes same for me I have to reload again.


#11

Is it reproducible for anybody? Is it the home page specifically? If you refresh a bunch of times, will it fail randomly, or is it just broken the first time and then better when you refresh?


#12

Not for me; happens on any page or topic in the site.

It just happens, and occasionally breaks, randomly. Refreshing may or may not help.


#13

“or topic”? You mean it’s affecting the forum? (Only the forum?) This thread was originally about the “main” www.choiceofgames.com site, not the forum.

Despite the similarity in their names, https://forum.choiceofgames.com is a completely different machine from https://www.choiceofgames.com, and problems in each of those have to be investigated in very different ways.


#14

Yup, both. For me, anyway.


#15

Can somebody send me a screenshot of one of these 500 errors?
