unexpected server behavior... [Jan. 28th, 2003|10:07 pm]
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
Server: Apache
Content-length: 74
Content-Type: text/plain
X-Cache: MISS from www.livejournal.com
Connection: close

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...

Re: humm...

Oh ick - I never knew that mysql would allow you to do something as broken as that. IHMO this is another reason not to use mysql for anything which requires a real RDBMS.

(okay, so I've been spoiled by playing with large sybase and oracle RDBMSs :)
