Resolved - Unable to log back in to OSM

Hi all,

I was happily using OSM when suddenly I found myself logged out. Trying to log back into the mail OSM site after a long delay give this error:

Application error

The OpenStreetMap server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request (HTTP 500)

Feel free to contact the OpenStreetMap community if your problem persists. Make a note of the exact URL / post data of your request.

This may be a problem in our Ruby On Rails code. 500 occurs with exceptions thrown outside of an action (like in Dispatcher setups or broken Ruby code)

So, I clicked the contact link, which takes me to the wiki, where I am also logged out. Trying to log in here results in:

Login error
OpenStreetMap Wiki uses cookies to log in users. You have cookies disabled. Please enable them and try again. 

I haven’t changed any cookie settings and have now disabled a FF extension that deals with them, but that didn’t help, either.

Can somebody please help me get back in, or is there a general problem?


There seems to be a general problem - right now website and API seem to be down:

JOSM can’t download data any more, either.

Looks like the website is back, but the DB is in read only mode.
