Service Temporarily Unavailable
« on: October 18, 2009, 12:05:04 AM »
Hi,
When I try to login to my site I get a message like this (I am running SMF 1.1.10):
Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.


When I attempt to login, the url in my Internet Explorer browser address bar looks like thisL
mydomain.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=s6f6saevns5avcr73j8d0njle2

If I remove the ?PHPSESSID=s6f6saevns5avcr73j8d0njle2
then the main sites index page loads up like it should.

Could somebody please tell me why this is happening, It started happening a couple weeks ago for me (but I am almost always logged in so it may have been a problem even longer before that) and I can't recall changing anything in the forums setup.

Thanks,

Error logs are turned off since they fill up with all kinds of stuff most related to the tinyportal I believe and since the forum otherwise runs fine I simply turn off the error log retention.

Site is located at www.citybuildergames.com

If anybody tries it, register on site, login, then logout, then login again, you should then see the Server error message.

I tried the login logout on your site about 3 times each using FF and IE, both work fine for me, are other users experiencing this problem? Sounds like a user's config problem.

Hi City Builder, is this still an issue?

I don't think the error you posted in your first message is from SMF at all.
Have you considered asking your host about it?

Well, considering that I can reliably reproduce this error message simply by logging out of my account, and logging into a regular members account or log out of that members account and log back into my own it seems odd that it would only produce this error when that phpsess thing is part of the url.  As I said, if I remove everything that passes behind the index.php in the url then this error message never comes up ever, Ever.

Now Imnot discounting that it could come from the server, but that it would only appear when trying to login to the forums after logging out seems a bit suspicious.  Since I have no way to go through all of the files that belong to the forum to try to find if that message can be generated from the forum software, I guess anything is certainly possible.

I'm certainly not trying to post blame on the smf software, just trying to figure it out to make it stop.  For all I know it could be a mod applied that causes this too.

Create a clean SMF installation on a second database and try it on your server.
