Hi folks,

I was tryingt to run a game from: http://www.web-adventures.org/

These are old text style adventure games like Adventure (Colossal Cave), Zork, etc. so I figure they were a sure thing.  When on Firefox though I got a message when trying to start any of them:

Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@web-adventures.org 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/2.2.22 (Debian) Server at www.web-adventures.org Port 80


Huh ... then I tried on Chrome and it ran fine.  Is there something I need to add to my system or Firefox to run this (on Firefox)?  Also, I am uncertain where/how to view the server error log mentioned in the error message.

Thanks,
                  Chris

That error is server side, not a browser issue. Contact the site owner and let them know.

Yeah, a little later I tried again and it worked, has been fine since so I guess just a temporary glitch.

Hello!

Glad your problem went away. Servers DO have to 'go down' every now and then, for various reasons...
