    PopShops Down?
    Anyone else seeing this? Seems to have gone down about ten minutes ago - 10:55 A.M. EDT.

    Pages aren't feeding - getting this "server" error:
    An error occurred.

    Sorry, the page you are looking for is currently unavailable.
    Please try again later.

    If you are the system administrator of this resource then you should check the error log for details.

    Faithfully yours, nginx.
    Main site is also appearing the same way @ PopShops.com

    I got the same error message and sent an email to popshops support a few minutes ago. Looks like it is back now.

    PopShops was back up about five minutes after I posted. Just curious if it might have been a "local" Comcast thing or if all of PopShops was, indeed, down for 15 to 20 minutes this morning..

    Mayfly, looks like there was a check box to moderate new posts which I cleared. Should be good to go now.

  7. Thanks From:

    Anybody seeing it now?

    I'm seeing this on my pages - You don’t have permission to access /shops/php/removed
    on this server.

    Tried some proxies and see that as well.

    Oh, looks like my hosting, too many files or something.

    Trust - Contact your host and make sure that PopShops IP hasn't been blocked. I have had this happen on 2 different servers. If a rogue bot/spider starts requesting/following a lot of links and doesn't know how to handle them it can get in a ugly cycle that makes the server think it's under attack. It will block the PopShops IP since the info flows from them.

    I had to have both of my webhost white list the IP.

    Let me know if you need the IP for PopShops.

    Sure, I'll take it just in case that's the problem. Was in chat for 45 minutes and they couldn't fix it, said contact PopShops:

    "I think PopShops is blocking access from your site, for some reason -- the php in that post goes to get http://shops.popshops.com/shops/php/---------------- but for some reason isn't allowing wordpress to output the file (hence permission denied). I don't see any permission denied errors on our server, however, which means the permission denied is deriving from PopShops server."

    I enabled curl and wget permissions for your account too (two linux commands that are being used in the php file for this post) but this has not fixed the issue. I think you may need to contact popshops."

    And popshops is working for my sites that I have different hosting for, just problems on my hostgator hosting.

    I wasn't sure whether to post the IP in the forum so I sent it to you in a PM.

    Odd that it's only on hostgator.
