We got a situation with a client's online auction site that is driving us crazy. The client will notify us that the site is down and what we see on the FM Admin Console is that the WPE is off (grey) and there 10-15 php clients that won't drop. Usually we can restart the WPE and the site will bring itself back up. Today even though we restarted WPE, the site would not come back online and a restart of the server was required.
This is a CWP PHP interface that allows web clients to search the auction inventory and display lots currently available for sale or previously sold. Each lot has multiple images associated, but though the find results page can list up to 100 lots the images are sized down for web viewing.
So far there hasn't been anything usual found in the FileMaker Server Logs.
We're looking for any suggestions on what might be causing the WPE to quit.
