I receive the error "Service Unavailable" in details "XmlHttpRequestError Service Unavailable" while trying to edit any form in the webclient.

System details:

  • OpenERP v8 (Trunk) running over mod_wsgi on apache 2.4.7
  • Ubuntu 14.04 on a cloud

looking for solution since 10 days... no resaults... i found lots of people facing same issue.

Any suggestions?

Finally i found the solution; It is a network timeout problem.


in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf increase the KeepAliveTimeout  and restart the apache server

Default value is 5, i set it to 10 and the error never apears.

Other related parameter from /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:

  • Timeout 300
  • KeepAlive On
  • MaxKeepAliveRequests 300
  • KeepAliveTimeout 10
