LiveJournal Client Discussions
I've been working on getting my livejournal client to be more
resilliant to errors and such, and this error has been coming up
recently. (I even got this from the web-based LJ update thingy,
and it had the same result.)
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 29 Jan 2003 03:05:06 GMT
X-Cache: MISS from www.livejournal.com
Server error: Error obtaining necessary database lock
The thing that's really strange about this one is that it posts the message
anyway. Even though the success response is FAIL, the
post is still accepted into the database.
Is there some addendum to the protocol docs that I seem to have missed about
the true meaning of "FAIL"?
And what's up with the "X-Cache" line... just curious on that one...
