Application is busy restarting on the Web server

The page requires a web server application that is not available, but is being restarted.

It may also be caused by a backup or Anti-Virus scan running on the server, which prevents access to the server application.

If the page has been deleted from the server or it is not currently available you can try to get an achived copy. If you used a link from a search engine, you might be able to get some information by using the "cached" option.

You can also try viewing the site or page from an archive such as the WaybackMachine.

Most archives and cached versions only retains the site text. Graphics and other media objects are linked to the orignal site and may or may not be available.

You might notify the webmaster about the issue. Include the error number and the address (URL) where the error occurred along with any other relevant details.

Many sites use an email address in the form webmaster@sitename.com where you replace sitename.com with the web sites address (don't include a www). Keep in mind with the amount of spam, they may use a different address and/or it might get ignored. Check the websites' contact information to get reliable contact information.

  Official Explanation  
     
 
  technical details

This indicates that you tried to load an ASP page while IIS was restarting the application. This message should disappear when you refresh the page. If you refresh the page and the message appears again, it may be caused by antivirus software that is scanning your Global.asa file.

(From Description of Microsoft Internet Information Services status codes)
Additional notes for the web server administrator - Microsoft Knowledgebase article 248013.

  Notes  
     
  "500.12 - Application is busy restarting on the Web server" is only supported by Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) web servers.

The five hundred series of errors indicate something is wrong at the server and it is unable to complete the action.
