What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I tried to log in several times just now (via the StackExchange OpenID service), but my login attempt failed. I got an error message like this:

"An error occurred on the server

This event has been recorded.

If you believe you encountered this message in error, please report it."

(with https://openid.stackexchange.com/error?aspxerrorpath=/openid/provider showing in the address bar, and with "please report it" a link going here)

After retrying multiple times I was eventually able to log in successfully. So, I don't know if this is a transient issue or not, and I don't know if I can reproduce it -- but I thought I'd report it in case it is helpful.

With the whole Sandy-induced NY -> OR data center failover, I can't recall exactly what issue would have been affecting you but I'm pretty confident it was temporary and has been fixed.

OpenID logins should be functioning normally for everyone.
