Internal server error when trying to add new forum

Phil Morse

Hi, I have a new board that's been running OK for a few days. I am trying to add a forum (I've done it successfully before), but now I am getting an internal server error popup, even before hitting "Save Forum" ie just while typing in the board name, description etc.

If I get as far as pressing the Save Forum button, it hangs and the forum isn't created.

I have checked the Apache log file and I see this:

[Fri Jun 24 00:01:54 2011] [error] [client] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: Error reading request entity data, referer:

Can you help please?

If it's any help "an unexpected database error occurred" also happens, although this doesn't seem to stop me doing anything - I just repeat the action.

This is not an error I've seen reported previously.

Are you on shared hosting or a VPS?

How many forums do you have?
