Subject Re: [firebird-support] Web application failure
Author Jules
I have since rebooted our webserver and have found the application errors have been fewer but intial error still remains.

* Our application is running on an 2000 IIS6 server seperate from our fb1.5 install running on FedoraCore4.

* The web application is written in Delphi 7 and uses the Interbase Access components to
connect to Firebird.

* The Web application holds a session open for the web user while they are active and times
out the session after an hour of inactivity (when the wander away). The objects for the
session will be being destroyed when the timeout happens - there is no explicit closing of
database connections and am assuming the objects do that themselves.

These errors are just saying that the server has lost contact with a
client that it is has been listening to - quite typical when the
client is a browser.

Tell us more about the architecture - is "the webserver" an
application on the same machine where Firebird and the database
are? Or are you referring to a separate machine? How does the web
application connect to the database? Does the webserver keep account
of clients and take action to end their database work when they
wander away? What's the OS platform? etc., etc.
