errors while posting

I've starting getting this error when I post. It's quite annoying as you lose all the text you have created - the "back" button does not get you out of the problem.

Error 403

Manually clearing the cookies for chdk.setepontos.com seems to clear up the issue - at least temporarily.  But it's a pain to do and my original post text is gone at that point.

@waterwingz,

Could you confirm if this was a one time issue or if it was recurrent? If so, do you remember when it started?

Second time it has happened (or maybe the third?)- all within the last week. 

The first time it happened I cut & pasted the edit buffer to a text editor after I retyped it.  Then I started deleting things like [ url ][ /url ] links from the posting until eventually I stopped getting the error when I clicked Post or Preview and the text was accepted.   

Today I cleared the site's cookies from local cache and that "fixed" it.

Is there anything I should do / record if it happens again?


EDIT:   this was the post that generated the same message multiple times until I redid it from scratch :  https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=10822.msg129197#msg129197

It could be either the server struggling - unlikely but possible - but more likely there's something triggering that within the post. I've looked through the logs and found a couple of entries that may have something to with it, but the timestamp doesn't match that post you mentioned.

Anyhow, if you see that again please take note of the timestamp or if a post is successful just point me to that post so that I can cross-reference with the error log.

Sometime I can hit "BACK" and get the original post and then just hit the "Post" button again.  No changes - it just works the second time.

Sometimes I seem to lose everything.  Quite annoying when you lose a post you've spent 30 minutes carefully composing.   I'm back to making sure that I cut&paste to notepad prior to posting so that I don't lose everything.

Hi, this is due to excessive server load. I'm trying to balance this out.

It seems to be getting worse?

Thanks

I'm closing this thread for now, considering the updated PHP engine version (info here). If any posting issues should reoccur, please open a new thread.
