After several attempts at uploading data, and re-uploading data which seemed to work fine yesterday nothing is working today when I try to view the images and get data.
Uploading the FITS images (zipped or unzipped) seems to work ok, and a test upload says everything is fine.
But when I click on the link to view the image I get the following error message:

Server Error in '/app' Application.
Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.

Is it broken, or is it just me?
Yesterday the images opened, today those same images gave the above error.

Hi Steve,

Looking at the logs, the VPHOT server sure had a bad day at the office yesterday. As the error message said it ran out of memory.

It has been restarted and is now working again.
