    Server side script hangs or keeps running



      Server side script hangs or keeps running

      Your post

      I have FMS 9 on an Xserve Mac OSX Server 10.5.8. It runs pretty well I must say.


      So now I start experimenting with server side scripting. All script-steps are web compatible. What I am doing is getting email using mail.it-plugin version 3.0.12 as a server-plugin which dacons says works.


      OK everything fine, but sometimes the script just keeps running and the only way to kick the script off the server is to force quit it. Which I don't particularly like to do.


      Is there a way to stop a running script on the server ? Or do you guys have tips on trapping for problems like this ?

          Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.


          Does the script do the same thing on a client machine?  If so, you may want to build in some error capturing mechanisms.  If you get into an endless loop, then use a variable counter so it stops after "x" iterations.


          If you don't have the plugin, do the scripts run correctly?


          Any other information you can provide may be helpful in determining possible causes.
