Server side CGI processing maintenance

The online CGI system required for KitCAD i3 KGC and KitCAD i3 KGC r3 to operate and function correctly has required maintenance. Server side CGI processed webpages resulting in errors/bugs and undesired operation should now be corrected. Other scripting support like PHP, Python, Ruby systems did not require any maintenance.

On 28th DECEMBER 2012 (7:00AM AEST, or before) a CGI system failure started. The failure had to be resolved by NetSol Hosting Technical Support. Debug, Details and related information may be posted as comments.

See Site Status page for current server/site wide status information.

Please note that server/services may appear to turn-on again over time (or when Web Browsers catch is cleared).

    A simple script/image-size detector that can be used for scanning PHP and CGI errors will be added to new releases of KitCAD i3 KGC and KitCAD i3 KGC r3.

    Other options/functions/values should also be tested: if KGC CGI boot option is used and KGraphicControl fails to load – and then with a failed CGI image size result, a message could be displayed in relation to CGI failure (and not KGC/KGraphicControl).

    The Broken/Text/Missing image below shows current CGI status; The missing image or text message of [NO CGI] shows CGI error – when fixed a image will be displayed;

    ==>> [NO CGI] <<==

    File permission resets cause CGI failure; See Related issue for more information.
