Description

I'm using josm 1553 and i get an Internal server error while uploading a set of changes.

josm reports only : POST http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/changeset/975859/upload... Internal Se rver Error and gives up after 4 or 5 tries.

I uploaded the changes to an OSM file which can be found here : http://mversen.de/temp/rel.osm

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

There are basically two reasons for a 500 error.

One reason is a timeout on the server, which was happening quite a bit to start with after the API 0.6 upgrade. That usually leads to an intermittent error where the same changeset will eventually upload. These errors should be largely resolved now.

The other is a coding error on the server, and it sounds more likely that this is what you were seeing here as the same changeset has failed multiple times.

The most likely cause is that the changeset is invalid but the server was failing to report this to you properly - there were a number of issues like this in the code but I believe they are all fixed now.

I'm going to assume this is fixed for now (in that the server will now correctly report what is wrong with the changeset) but please reopen the ticket if you are still having problems.
