Unfortunately our flux capacitor is finding it difficult to compensate for the warp field generated by your primitive technology

Help Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

Looks as if we need to go bigger or better soon!! (Server wise)

Just been speaking with the host, they say this problem will not go away. On the positive side, we had 2100 new members sign up for a new free account last month and approx 87,000 new visits.

Any one that wishes to help us rent better equipment, how about signing up to the club? We will use the additional revenue to purchase better services which should keep the slow pages at bay for another couple of years.

It is a don't ask don't get world after all.

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)



Its thrown me out about half a dozen times tonight! :bat:

Can you not delete some of the newbies that havent been on for say the last year? I know you need more money to upgrade the computer gubbins but at the same time if you dont people are going to get p'd off with it!

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

Site is acting strange right now. I've been deleting duplicate posts and everything is slowing down.

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

My suspicion is the way you have the last posts set up - it's causing unnecessary demand on the server because its set as a search rather than as a feed

What I mean is, that every click on 'NewPosts Last 24 hours' is triggering a search - there are better ways to do it. Ask/search in the vbulletin support forums how to do a LAST 50 posts feed and your server worries will be cured i reckon

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

Not for me?


I have a strong hunch, I don't know why but I think if we delete the large thread TCT, it might help? Worth a try, no?
