I am totally puzzled by this. I don’t know if DH changed something or what, but my script that has worked for a couple months suddenly is having trouble. It’s giving me an error “Service Temporarily Unavailable” half the time. It’s a simple script, where you pass it some text and a few options and it prints it to a graphic and saves it as a gif. Now it’s being picky about what text it will print, giving that error when it refuses. I can’t correlate any particular change in text to when it errs. And I don’t understand why my error handling doesn’t work and it gives me the generic Sevice Unavailable error instead of giving a code error.
I’ve tried several different text strings, just random things, and made a list to try to identify what it’s not liking, but like i said, i see no pattern.
For example this works just fine:
mystatus2.php?username=gnznroses&password=PASSWORD&text=*BFreeGadgets4Me : GReceived $2 25B||FreeComputerAddons : *GReceived DVD Burner&font=crystal_clear&background=white
yet this doesn’t:
mystatus2.php?username=gnznroses&password=PASSWORD&text=BFreeGadge teive225B||FreeComp utnerB||Tr oonB||Free Pae*B||&font=crystal_clear&background=white
[note that in the url the spaces are url-encoded, a % sign then 20, but this forum is converting them]
Why would the script give a 503 error if it’s caused by the code? And why would it work fine for months and now it suddenly has this problem?
