Comments "Error 500"
A slight warning to those of you leaving comments here: For some reason - when you leave a comment, you might get an error page reporting “Error 500” after hitting “submit”. I’m not sure what’s causing it - but it seems that the comment is being accepted OK - just refresh the page and you should be able to confirm that the comment has been accepted. I’m trying to work out why this error is occurring. Perhaps I need to update my Movable Type software. The problem is that I need to find the time to do this. Alas - time flies like an arrow …

Another test - to see if stil get that 500 error.
Yep - still getting it. I think it’s got something to do with mtcomments.cgi timing out - or taking too long.
You fixed something for Anita’s commenting system. I’m sure you’ll find a way around this as well. :) (This too is a test comment!)
Anand/Sat - yes - I have spent a little time trying to work out a fix for this - but not having much luck. Anita’s problem was fairly straightforward. I think my problem involves examining Movable Type template code and CGI scripts - which is going to be a bit horrible and messy.
Sadly, when this started happening to me, I had to move to pMachine. I was also unable to back up any of my old posts.
That said, I do prefer pMachine, though it takes some getting used to.
Also, you may find that it starts happening when posting entries as well. Apparently a known issue but no fix that I’m aware of.
Hi Lisa - thanks for the tip-off - all I need now is to find the time to work out what to do next!
Another test after renaming.
