500 Internal Server Error
nginx/0.6.39

Can anyone help me out? I'm truly mystified by this error. Certain sites I can log onto and some not. There is no reason (that I would be prohibited) I can't log in to these sites, just out of the blue.

I tried restarting etc. to no avail.

I have an Apple Tiger OS but I don't think that necessarily pertains to this problem isn't it a network thing would it be my carrier? :thumbsup:

nginx is a a web server software. It is not very popular and used by only a small percentage of sites. Unfortunately, due to the small size and portability of this web server, it is used widely by cyber criminals.

If you are getting this error on many many sites of a wide range., then you have to worry as it is highly unlikely that so many sites are running on nginx.

I would start by checking the DNS servers and proxy servers setting of your browser, OS and the router.

Thanks for the suggestions. what you said about nginx makes sense in that this is a fairly new site trying to run on low budget stuff so perhaps that contributed. they aren't criminals but just "thrifty"

I took the technical approach (lol) and fooled around with my network utility and deleted some folders though I can't remember what and its working now so maybe it was a temp problem or maybe i accidentally fixed it. this is the only site it came up on.

You mentioned sites in your original post and you got my answer for that. Had you mentioned that you are getting this only on a single particular site, then I would have suggested you to wait as this is a server side error and you can do nothing about it.
