Welcome to the California Coastal Commission's Web Site!




Technical Help

If you are experiencing problems with the California Coastal Commission website, check the following list before contacting the web site coordinator:

* Older Version of Browser

You should be using either Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), version 4.0 or higher with Service Pack 1 (IE 5.0 preferred) or Netscape, version 4.0 or higher. If you are using an older version of either of these browsers, you will need to upgrade it.

* Web Traffic

The California Coastal Commission website may be experiencing a lot of traffic. Our recommendation: Just be patient and allow complete pages to download before you try clicking any of the links.

* Your Internet Service Provider (ISP)

Your ISP may be experiencing a problem. Try to see if you encounter the same problem with another site (see Web Traffic above).

* Your Modem

If you are using dial-up service, your modem may be too slow to download our web pages, causing the page to timeout before it is completely loaded. You might want to think about upgrading it, since it is also probably causing you problems accessing the web in general.

* Memory

Though our HTML web pages aren't overly large, some do include graphical elements. It is possible your computer does not have enough memory, and you might want to consider additional memory.

* PDFs

Our staff reports pertaining to Commission meeting agenda items, other larger documents and reports are provided in Portable Document Format. To read and/or print these, you need (the free) Adobe Reader plug-in for your browser; the latest version is 8.0. To get it, click here, then follow the installation instructions.
