Receiving 'error 500' when submitting a new cache

Recommended Posts

Last night, I was setting up pages for three new caches, and while the first had no problems, the other two deliver a 'error 500' message when I click Save & Preview on the size and ratings page. I've tried backing up to the point where it asks if I want to start over or edit the existing page, and waited overnight, but I'm still facing the same problem. I can't submit either of these caches, but I don't want to scrap them and try again from fresh, thus burning two perfectly good GC codes. If anyone had any advice on how to attempt to solve this issue, I would appreciate it immensely.

500 is the universal code for a problem at their end.

 

They should be notified automatically, and it's up to them to fix it.  Patience...

Thanks for the speedy answer. Now we play the waiting game.

Are you still experiencing the same issues? I cannot reproduce the issues at this point. Everything seems to be running smoothly.

 

That's a difficulty with a 500 error.  All it means is that while processing a request and before a response can be constructed, "something" went wrong, and the server didn't specifically catch the error so that it could send back a meaningful response.  Whatever caused the error could be temporary (ran out of  memory, ran out of connections to a database,  a time out when getting data from another service, etc).
