Blank Page Loading before Action Complete


#1

I am having this problem where a blank page is being loaded before an
action can complete. I have a somewhat lengthy calculation that I am
doing, and well before it is done a blank page is displayed. Once it is
finished it is supposed to display an overview of the results but it
never shows that page. At first I was not sure what was going on, but I
tailed the development log, and even though the blank page is shown, the
action is still plugging away in the background. Consequently it works
fine on my local machine with Webrick, but not on my web server with
Apache. Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.

Try clearing up the Cookies.
Should work I guess!

Thanks for the advice. I did the following

  1. deleted all cookies off my client machine.
  2. deleted all ruby session files that I owned on my shared server
  3. ran the calculation again

The same thing happened, a blank page with the code still running in the
background. Right now it just sort of “goes out to lunch” when running
this calculation, I have not put any sort of progress indicator or
anything in there yet. I wonder if I did that would it maybe not time
out like it is appearing to do?
