Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Why was my question closed? What would be the correct site to post it at? I tried to write a solution in Python and it didn't work out, and as Python is a programming language I really don't know why it was marked as off-topic.

The question was closed because it is not related to a programming problem. It's a system administration problem, really. I would not vote to close it if it were on Serverfault.

thank you squillman. I will post it there, but i hope it's not gonna be considered as cross-posting. – Codrguy Nov 29 '11 at 1:08
You should be fine. You could flag the question on SO for migration to SF, a diamond mod can still forcefully migrate it. If not, put a comment on it saying it was originally posted on SO and that should stave off the cross-posting police. – squillman Nov 29 '11 at 1:11
The boundary between SE and SF can be painful, especially as SF is specifically for professional system administrators. So, if you have a non-professional system administration issue closely related to your programming task, you're out of luck: there is nowhere to ask. – Steve Bennett Nov 29 '11 at 5:58
In that case I would post it on Superuser. – squillman Nov 29 '11 at 17:21
