When trying to post on the ocPortal Forum last night I got this error message

An error has occurred

PHP ERROR [1] Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in /home/ocp/public_html/sources/comcode_from_html.php on line 548 (version: 5.0.1, PHP version: 5.3.2, URL: /forum/topics/_add_reply.htm)

Here is the stack trace:

Below is a stack trace revealing the state the software was in when the error occurred. If this represents a bug in the unmodified software, you may want to check ocPortal website for a fix, and if there isn't one, report this as a bug. Please note that merely posting a stack trace is not sufficient for us to solve your problem; the stack trace is just an aid that presents us with additional information. We still need to know the error message, what you tried to do, how you tried to do it, version numbers, and any other appropriate information.
We apologise for this problem and if it's a bug we hope you will work with us so that we can fix it for you promptly.

It must have been the formatting of what I was trying to post as I was able to post 4 replies including the original post which I whittled down and stripped off some of the code references and the codebox block. The site security must have not liked what I was trying to feed it so I used a different recipe.

We've got quite a few automated error mails about this, but it's difficult to debug because these timeout stack traces don't go back far enough to see. I'll improve them a bit then if it happens again look more closely. I would guess probably your post was quite long and our server very busy at the time.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I'm adding my 2c to this topic, as Friendly and I often have similar problems at night and during the weekends, especially on Sundays.

Indeed, I've gotten a few such timeouts while attempting to work through codebox blocks and resorted to image attachments to get to save the posts. This could very well be due to ocP's server being extra busy at the time, but I'm reflecting that this situation never happened during work days at peak traffic times.

So, what are the common denominators between Friendly and I?
  • We are both quite far from ocP's server, although he beats me there by a long margin
  • Both, our site servers are in Texas
  • We're mostly affected late at night and during the weekends it seems
Now, these are my observations; highly speculative;O_o maybe slightly off topic and solving nothing;:offtopic: should be taken with a grain of salt and a bit of humor:;)

When these problems occur, I've noticed that my ability to browse and interact with the web is greatly impaired and sometimes immobilized by what I would call "web brownouts" and "regional blackouts". It would be easy to put the blame on my local ISP, but my investigation leads me to realize that my packets are out of this little Island at lightning speed (literally) and intercepted by U.S. mainland routers deciding if "this little Island" is deserving of prime attention.

More often than not, packets are bounced between questionable routers (unclear identity), essentially capturing my data for seconds and finally causing timeouts. Other times, packets will fall out, destroying data (packet loss), or the entire request is simply discarded (like some mailmen here were suspected of doing when they wanted to go home early and just disposed of the rest of the mail in the nearest garbage drum).

This method will ensure that for hours on, the World Wide Web is being denied to users based on a system of regional discrimination. These iniquities can also be enacted not just on points of origin, but entire destinations are off the map for periods of time. I understand that this is inevitable and expected during traffic peak times, but at night and weekends! Is this to be attributed to the ongoing economic crises? After all, the web's communication is in the hands of corporate speculators.

Anyone can follow the tribulations of his internet packets with simple tools such as "ping" and "tracert" and be amazed at the complexity behind the process. I often do when my Internet communications are impaired and wish there would be a better way to get clearer answers. Maybe, half a billion facebook and tweeter denizens are creating a permanent traffic peak.:o
