Check spelling does not work now

When I clicked “Check spelling” on Submit Writing page, I saw the following message.

An error was encountered on the server:

500 - Server error

I would like to use this fonction before submitting my writing. Could you check it up, please?

When I clicked “Points: 554”, I also saw the following message.

Throttled, wait 1701 seconds.

So, I can not buy points now. What happened?

I experienced the same trouble when I tried to check spelling.

An error was encountered on the server:

500 - Server error

Now, again.

the same here (firefox mozilla)

The spellchecker is working now. Let us know if you continue to have problems.

@dillemme - are you still having trouble with your points purchase? I see that a purchase did go through.

Hi, I just tried to test it and there is an error:

An error was encountered on the server:
aspell terminated prematurely with the error: ‘Error: The file “/usr/lib/aspell/en” can not be opened for reading.’

Firefox Mozilla version 3.6.9

Thanks, TheDoctor. That should be fixed now.

Hi, everything is OK now. Good job! :slight_smile: Cheers! :))

I think it is working fine now! Thanks!

The spell check seems to be encountering the same issue as described above now. I’ve tried three different browsers and I get a server error everytime I try to spell check in Spanish.

This is the error I get: An error was encountered on the server:
aspell terminated prematurely with the error: 'Error: The file “/usr/lib/aspell/es” can not be opened for reading.

@CTaylor - Thanks for the information about this. We’ll take a look and see what might be going on here.

I also had trouble yesterday with the Spanish spellchecker.
