I get random errors: === Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat) Server at Port 443 ===


=== Oops… Trac detected an internal error:

OperationalError: database is locked === More generally, the server is quite slow. Also, it appears partly misconfigured, and based on a rather old apache. And very old python.

While I no longer observe outages as reported in this ticket, still trac is often very slow. Was the announced SQLite update implemented?

comment:2 by pcav, 15 years ago

More errors today, always 500.

Generally the qgis trac is very slow, difficult to work with.

comment:3 by wildintellect, 15 years ago

Internal Server Error showed up again, port 80 and 443 OSSIM, Mapserver, QGIS - OSGEO4w seemed to load but slowly

Time of outage May 18 23:30 -23:39 PST (California) UTC Tuesday, May 19, 2009 at 06:30:00

Observed by both Pcav in Italy and me in California.

I'm curious if this is related to trac setup(do we use mod_python), apache(are we running multi-threaded) setup or high cpu or disk load by another process. Can someone at least check the log files to see if anything came up at the noted time in either apache or trac?

Still getting frequent errors, sometimes the trac is almost unusable, always very slow.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Trac is:

  1. Not on sqlite anymore.
  2. Not on the same server anymore.
