Re: Download issues

I have tested this, and discovered the issue is not length of story.  There seem to be specific chapters that cause issues with the zipping process.  I will try to look into this, but I hold out very little hope of figuring out what's causing the problem.  I may have to simply look for a different function library to do the zipping with.

Please be patient.

Re: Download issues

I've noticed it too - on my phone I will eventually get a time out. if I click back and then click the button again, sometimes it will download it immedialtey, other times it will go through another timeout

Could be server side with it trying to read from the database, write to disk, and then assemble the zip file.

I've also written a script on my local computer (linux) that takes the .zip file, unpacks, tweaks the table of contents, then creates an epub from it.
(based on the calibre ebook reader ebook-convert program). 

Admin willing to trade some access for server/programming? 3dsmile

Re: Download issues

This is what I just got about 11:17AM EST March 7th

Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Additionally, a 503 Service Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I clicked back, clicked Download again and boom, it downloaded immediately

Re: Download issues

1.  No, I'm not about to give anyone access to my account.  I've been burned on website issues already.  Especially since I'm trying to create a NEW version of the site, not prop up this decaying beast.
2. Any error that talks about server availability is completely beyond my control.  GoDaddy controls the server, not me.

Re: Download issues

Eric:

I have a question for you about The Wolf Pub. I have seen no stories updated in over a month. That includes The Woodward Acadamy. I am just wondering if it is just my computer or is it infact that no postings have happened? I love this site and would hate to miss any stories. 3dhmm                             Thanks for All You Do For This Site.

Re: Download issues

Content production on this site is at a low, yes.  There will be a release of WAY8 within the next week or so, but this site is basically dead, unfortunately.

Re: Download issues

I may have a temporary fix for the long story down loads! I have found that after your down load fails refresh the page and then try it.  It worked well for me. It may also work for you also. All I can say is give it a shot!
