I can confirm the EXACT SAME THING................ IT IS NOT WORKING - appears that portion of the server code has NOT been activated or possibly not installed.

If you try to visit a website and see a “500 Internal Server Error” message, it means something has gone wrong with the website. This isn’t a problem with your browser, your computer, or your internet connection. It’s a problem with the site you’re trying to visit.

...... If you’re a website owner and you’re experiencing this error on your server, there’s no single easy fix. There’s a problem with something, and it could be many things. Common problems include an error in your website’s .htaccess file, incorrect permissions on files and folders on your server, a software package that your website depends on not being installed, or a timeout when connecting to an external resource.

You’ll need to examine your web server’s log files and do more troubleshooting to determine the specific cause of the problem and its solution.

I cannot edit my profile. Tried edge and chrome and two different computers.

Verified that active-x (virus transfer protocol) is enabled.
Verified that popups are enabled
Verified that ubock was disabled

Please fix this problem.

thanks!

Hi all,

Profile editing and creation is currently down. When we migrated the server over to the new machine in May we updated Boinc to a 1.x version, which disabled most of the things we had changed in the website code. We are aware of the problems and are working on fixing them.

Editing works but instructions are misleading:

After entering the correct captcha the phrase "Save" should appear. Alternately, the phrase "Edit/Create" should be changed to add "Save" to it.. In addition, if a mistake in the captcha is made, the warning about the incorrect captcha is left on the display and is not removed even after the captcha is correctly entered. There needs to be an alert of some type to show that the captcha is correct. Normally a "save" button appears. I edited my personal info using Microsoft edge. Other browser may have different results.
