I have two sites using SilverStripe. After I moved them to another server I got this error:


The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

Has anyone got any idea of this?

just to test enable dev mode on the second server so that instead of that generic msg you can get the actual error

you can enable dev mode by adding Director::set_environment_type("dev"); to your mysite/_config.php file
