Description Shawn Mower 2007-09-12 17:16:15 UTC

I used to be able to run the W3 Validator on the pages of my site to find errors.

However, now even though it is a valid site that you can browse online, the validator just times out and gives this error message:

"Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


Apache/2.2.6 (Debian) Server at Port 80"

I don't know how to fix this since it doesn't explain what is wrong.  My hosting provider claims there is no spider blocking software.  Other of their clients sites work on the validator and give a report of errors.
