Seemingly random 'Timeout expired' '80040e31' error
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a page on which users submit information.
A few days ago this problem started occurring.
It's seemingly intermittent/random, but is happening frequently enough to be very very annoying.
Here's the error:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e31'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Timeout expired
/directory/page.asp, line 130
There is no script on the page that should take seconds to run, much less reach the timeout time.
If the page submitting the info gets the error, the page can be refreshed (and data resubmitted) and it will work (sometimes). So, it's not necessarily the data being submitted.
