Trying to download CellProfiler returns an HTTP 500; trying to download CPA returns a Python cgi_tb page:

A problem occurred in a Python script. Here is the sequence of function calls leading up to the error, in the order they occurred.

Hi Tim,

This is a problem on our end. IT tells us that the server is experiencing file system problems such that attempts to write log files (such as when you download) is generating I/O errors. Once it’s back up, I’ll post on the forum to let you know.



OK, IT says the server is back up (more or less), so give it a try.
