I had put in a support ticket earlier, but now I’m begining to wonder where the problem really lies so I pulled it because I’m begining to think it’s on my end–hopefully somebody here can shed a bit of light on this. I’ve been seeing a couple of weird issues with Chimera (a MacOS X-only browser, based on the Mozilla Gecko engine).
First of all, I’ve been completely unable to access the Dreamhost Control Panel from my home computer when using Chimera; if I hit panel.dreamhost.com (or any sub-url) I always get a “500 Internal Server Error”. This occurs with both most recent nightly and current stable builds of the browser. I am able to access the Panel using Mozilla or Internet Explorer, though I prefer not to.
The funny thing is, I just found it seems to be working from my connection at work (at least, it is today); I use Cox (cable modem) at home, and am on a University backbone at work.
Assuming nothing has changed since this morning so it still isn’t working at home, I’m wondering what might be up with this “server” issue (if it really is–never had a problem with Chimera otherwise).
The second issue was temporary, only occuring between about 4am and 8am last night: when I tried to view any of the sites
connected to my Dreamhost account, the browser bounced between a “Sending request for…” and “Connecting to…” message for a few seconds, then displayed a “Document contains no data” error. Re-logins (on my computer) didn’t help, and IE is able to connect
properly. Dreamhost.com was working fine.
Any guesses as to what may be causing/have caused either of these issues, or has anybody seen anything similar? I haven’t messed with any funky preferences as far as my browsers or general internet settings go (no custom DNS or hosts file or anything).
Incidentally, if you’re running MacOS X and aren’t using Chimera, give it a try–first browser I’ve happily replaced IE with.
