I got the following message using Firefox with Sage 4.5.3 via VM 3.1.1 build-282343.

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. Apache/2.2.12 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

Also starting Sage in VM-player (Ubuntu) is strange. It shows only a flash of comments (can't read it) and then the application closes.

I'm especially worried that I cannot reach anymore my workbook files....

Any help is much appreciated!

I FOUND A SOLUTION. My problem was that both config.pickle and user.pickle were empty.

I copied both "standard" files from a earlier version of Sage.

This happens more often; see sage user forum

Maybe the developers could add an exeption handler just like IOError in / in __init__(self, dir).

In that case a "basic" copy of both files are read.

I'm having exactly the same problem, but I'm not quite so tech savvy. Can you post some more details? Where can I find "standard" files from an earlier version? Where are the config.pickle and user.pickle files on my computer? Thanks.
