Default Site Temporarily Unavailable

"Site Temporarily Unavailable" is the response for some attempts to access http://www.fairmountcivicassociation.org, and not for others.

On my WinXP Pro computer, all five browsers (IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari) produce this message. Same thing on my wife's computer, but on my Windows 7 laptop, I get the web site, not the message, with Internet Explorer and with Firefox 15.0.1. Other civic association members report the same thing, some get the web site, some do not.

It seems to me that it must be something about the way the web site is set up, not cookies on my computer, or a difference among browsers or operating systems. Any suggestions out there?

Your link was incorrect--it had something like "http://www.http://www.fairmountcivicassociation.org" in it so I fixed it to " http://www.fairmountcivicassociation.org/ " (no quotes) but I still get an error on the page display in Firefox--WinXP system and on my Win7 system also using FF.

On Win7 with Firefox 15.0.1 I got the website.

In Debian Linux with Epiphany 2.30.6 I got the temporarily unavailable message with the error id "bad_httpd_conf" which seems to suggest a configuration problem with the web server.

Since a wide variety of users with different browsers and operating systems get different results, sometimes the web site, sometimes the message, I agree that the probable problem lies in the web server configuration, and not with any particular user's configuration. The web master knows there is problem, and we must look to him for a solution.

error id: "bad_httpd_conf" is a clue I think!
