Server issues
« on: March 13, 2012, 02:39:00 PM »
One thing I'm not sure about with the new forum is whether my server will take the load.  :-\
Does the forum ever go down? For how long?
Please post any server issues you encounter here so I know if I need to take action :)

Just to confirm that the dinotoyblog.com server went offline for an hour or so earlier today. Apologies for the inconvenience.

we had a down time of about 55 minutes Doc, Do your servers have enough ram and CPU's to take the load? What OS is it running?
If you seek help configuration Server hardware I may be able to help out ;)

We've had some reports of recent sluggishness on the forum, has anyone encountered problems recently? Reports that all is working fine are also welcome!

I think I must just be extremely unlucky!  ;D It's doing better at present, though for how long?  ;D

I also get a lot of connection reset messages. Other times, pages load without any css styling.
My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

Same here. I guess it happens to all of us?

Thanks for the heads up, guys. Your feedback is really valuable. Does this happen frequently, i.e. every time you are on the site? Or is it sporadic?

For me, sporadic, though frequently enough to be called 'regular'.

Ditto. It seems to happen in "clusters" though. It'll do it a few times, or it won't do it at all. Weird... Gotta love technology right?

I visit the DTF every day and the "server reset" messages always happen at least once.
The css problem happens frequently for me, about once for every 4-6 pages I visit.

In the forum chat, Postsaurischian mentioned "I've also been getting these 'page not found' messages for a few days. The problem is usually quickly solved by refreshening the page but it's unpleasant."

That's exactly what I've been experiencing too. Refreshing the page usually works, but it is annoying. I think the server is momentarily dropping out. If it continues I'll look for a fix. Sorry everyone!

Each time I open DTF in my browser I get some sort of error. Probably it's the one that you mentioned, but way more often that I would like.  :-\

EDIT: Haha, even when i posted this, as I clicked the "Save" button I got the white page with Error 404.

Getting a lot of 404's here also, in addition to pages loading without css.

Yeah, it seems to be getting pretty bad. Thanks for letting me know, it helps me get a picture of the extent of the problem. I'll see if I can upgrade the DTB server, if not, I'll have to move to a new more expensive one.  C:-)

Argh, I've had the same problem regularly the last few days. Even right now when I was logging in... :-\

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a T-rex by Krentz? My friends all have Sideshow, I must make amends.

I've contacted my service provider to see what can be done. Again, apologies for the inconvenience  :-[
Hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

I'm having problems also.  Sometimes when I'm posting or trying to go to a new page I have to try 3 or 4 times.
