    Hi, I am experiencing an error that occurs around every 5 minutes on my site.
    About every 5 minutes; All pages on my site display an error "The requested page could not be found."

    Then after a minute or two, the site goes back to the way it should; as if the error never happened.



    ACP Settings:


    My website address is Factions.ca

    If I could be provided with a solution to this problem that'd be great! Thanks,

    I've been monitoring your site for 10 minutes and haven't seen the error.

    However, a random error such as this is likely to be server related.
    Contact your host and ask them to check.

    Is your server running Windows and IIS perchance?

    Yes, I am using GoDaddy's Windows 'Ultimate Dedicated Web Host'.

    I debugged an issue recently that was related to IIS doing a very bizarre thing. It was randomly changing the filename of the requested index.php file and calling it "Index.php" (capital I). No rhyme or reason and modifying index.php would fix it again. It almost seems like some corrupted IIS cache.

    Adding this to the end of library/config.php should work around it:
    $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'] = str_replace('Index.php', 'index.php', $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']);
