10.5.4 503 Service Unavailable
The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If known, the length of the delay MAY be indicated in a Retry-After header. If no Retry-After is given, the client SHOULD handle the response as it would for a 500 response.
Note: The existence of the 503 status code does not imply that a server must use it when becoming overloaded. Some servers may wish to simply refuse the connection.
10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error
The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.
how the client SHOULD handle the 503 error response? — right, «User agents SHOULD display any included entity to the user»…
«Feed Stats» tab says I’ve got as many as 6 (six!) feed readers.
granted, one of them is myself and other perhaps are some bots, I hope that none of the real human being not to dare read that free flow of lucidity that dawns me up.
however, just in case, if there are some desperate souls who has subscribed to it, I should bring my appologies warn you at the same time:
- due to this blog author’s perfectionism old posts are updated quite often — don’t wander if your aggregator pops up with a last year post;
- many posts are paginated (MORE_TEXT_TAG), but wp.com does NOT export extened entries nor does it give any clue about this to the feed reader.
now, when WordPress.com is up and running after the recent downtime, I noticed it runs times faster than did before.
yay, it flies just like a birdy, even a SSL admin back-end UI (I earlier avoided to use as much as possible) now generates pages way faster than my local server box. well, the latter is a pretty vintage of course, but anyway, literally, pages load more quickly than they could be rendered.
obviously, guys who run WP.com, either have made something great on the back-end database subsystem (restructured db schemas, optimized queries, etc) or replaced the hardware infrastructure a lot with a new more powerful one.
