500 server errors fixed

All of the sudden today is reporting 404 errors and 500 server errors on certain pages, and the forums aren’t working at all. I don’t know what happened, but I have a support ticket open with the hosting provider to try to figure out what’s going on.

Update: several hours later

The support folks at softsyshosting worked into the wee hours and finally discovered that a server configuration change was the source of the problem:

a handler was incorrectly added to server which caused .php extension to be mapped to ASP.NET ISAPI dll.

So everything is back to normal and that was a pretty quick turnaround.
