I've tried a half dozen child metas, the main site's Profile pages are fine but the child meta Profiles are oops. The child meta site's pages (not my profile) work fine.


Tried logging out and back in. It has been occurring for over 20 minutes.

We had one server going a bit crazy with memory (from a competing process) - I've gotten a dump, cycled the issue (to restore production), and will dig into what's causing it first thing tomorrow. Thanks for the report!

  • That kick has fixed it, on a half dozen meta Profiles that I've tested. Only thing is to find out what caused it in the first place. Thanks for the speedy reply and repair.
