At our site, we run two TWiki installations, one on Intranet, and one on Internet. After upgrading both installations from TWiki 2004 to 4.05, we experience the following problems:
  • When editing a large page, the page is sometimes truncated, after a save and/or preview.
  • Occasionally, when editing, previewing, or saving, the text of someone else's edit session is shown.
Frequency of above problems is low.

Our configurations can be viewed in the attachments. Do note that we run SpeedyCGI.

Somehow, we think that above problems have to do with the use of speedy. We found an IRC chat referring to speedy problems: * http://koala.ilog.fr/twikiirc/bin/irclogger_log/twiki?date=2006-09-25,Mon

We have used speedy on our previous TWiki 3 installations without any problems. It seems like this problem is only occurring when using TWiki 4 in combination with speedy.

Re-prioritizing to normal becasue it is specific to the environment used, as discussed in #twiki_release meeting

We need to get some more facts

  • Apache error_log
  • You need to try turning off plugins and see if it is related to one of those. One global variable somewhere and we have major problems.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 12 Feb 2007

Thank you for your quick response! I uploaded the error_log. I will switch of the plugins on our test server and try to find out if this solves our problems. I will keep you informed.

-- TWiki:Main.NathanSanders - 14 Feb 2007

You have

  • Many errors in the log
  • https
  • Speedy
  • extra plugins besides default

Several things to turn on/off to see what creates the problem.

You should perhaps also try TWiki-4.1.1

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with

No feedback, so discarding under 30 day rule.
