503 error for client
« on: March 26, 2015, 11:30:41 AM »

I have set up a server for a small business client where they can host images for a webshop.
The items in the shop are uploaded in a CSV file and from there the images are copied to the webshop host.

When I open the images they are displayed, but the webshop host is unable to copy the files.
They get a "HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable" error.

Does anyone know how to repair this?

I believe it is an issue with mime types... CSV file i thought were excel files.. not pictures, will have to double check myself on that...

any ways, under hfs:
official Mime: application/csv used and also text/csv

hfs > menu > Other options > mime types

Form a previous post i "updated mime types" -- see picture

under a empty "file mask" you should try "*.csv"
under the line over "description mime" you should try "image/csv"

this way, HFS -- the serve will rad the file as an image via application.. ( i clicked you weblink and went to your HFS folder with image files...) Live template should recognize it being an image and might work with preview....

thank you for your time and patience,

HFS replies with 503 only when "overloaded", that means clients have crossed the limits you set. Try removing some limits.
If you have no limits, then that answer doesn't come from HFS.
Ensure the 503 comes truly from HFS. You can see it by this line in the reply headers
Server:HFS 2.3d
Sometimes people get replies from other systems (like proxies) and they don't even know.
