Protocol Upload Problems


Previous Entry Protocol Upload Problems Jan. 6th, 2005 @ 05:22 pm Next Entry

We're currently experiencing problems with Protocol v1 Uploads. We suspect this is a problem with our new load balancers and are working to get it resolved.

This affects:
  • Windows client
  • Picture posts via LiveJournal's email gateway
  • fotoup.pl
  • any other clients that use the old protocol interface
This does not affect:
  • uploads via the web interface
  • clients using the new protocol
Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll update here when the issue is resolved.

Update: We've been working with the vendors of our load balancers to resolve the issue. A fix should be live within the hour.

Update 2: We have the fix live on our load balancers, but it requires that they be restarted, which will cause approximately 5 seconds of downtime for all of LiveJournal. Because if this we'll be doing the restart later tonight during off-peak time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I get error msg: "invalid credentials" when I use the upload client. What did I do wrong?

Absolutely nothing. As we note on the download page, the Windows client is several years old, unmaintained, and buggy. We're in the process of creating a new one.

The most reliable thing to do right now is use the web interface, but we're working to change that ASAP.

I just posted a support request about posting via the email gateway: http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=402992

Is this the same issue?
