Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to get the files from here-http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/phase3/skins but everytime I do, it gives me Could not read status line: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

Any ideas why?

Did you try that address in your browser? The server is responding to pings, but there's seems to be something wrong with apache.

Seems to work for me now. I would assume they were in the middle of an apache upgrade or similar network reconfiguration.
