Title: Has there been a problem with the forums?
Post by: Saturn_29 on August 15, 2019, 08:43:13 AM
Yesterday I had a bit of trouble getting into the forums but I did get in. Now today I haven't been able to get to the forums at all until a few minutes ago. Is everyone having problems with the forums? Or is it just me?

Sorry for the multiple post. After I posted the question the site went down so I clicked the refresh button a few times and that apparently posted my question a number of times.

Thanks. I thought it might of been just me because right before the forum problem started yesterday I had a windows update that I installed.

It happens from time to time. No need to worry about it. And usually the site is back within a few hours.

Ben and I are trying to identify the cause for this. FTP Server and Website are running fine, AIM-OCI Installtions (AIG Flightplans) should work as well

I've noticed something similar in the last week.   Clicking on a subforum within a particular topic can lead to an extended pause, sometimes I've been forced to close the forums and retry.  It always works in the end, but it seems slower lately.

I thought it's my connection from Eastern Europe.
Long pauses after ANY click, 50% end in blank page (dropped connection).
Posting a reply takes up to 5 attempts.
This started yesterday and got really worse today

My experience, too, and I'm in the middle of the US.
Still ongoing.
Something's not right.

It can be anything. From something with the database or overload on the server. As mentioned by Kai, he and Ben is working on it.

just to give you some numbers: In the last 26 days we had around 7 Terabyte Data running on our database for the forum ::rolleyes:

that's because you keep attachment files on the server. I think you should use something else. Some "outsource".
As we all know for traffic sake your situation is much worse - tons of tiny files, then 5 super large files. That's a very rough example, but it shows my point.

this has nothing todo with the attachments, they are not part of that statistic ;) Out total usage Forum incl. Attachments, Homepage and FTP is much higher but the server can handle that

I had to clear my browsing cache. It doesn't help. I know AIG had a problem. I waited until they fixed. I don't bother the post until now. I explained check your browser cache clear or check other sites are working. It means down or maintenance repair or downloading updates etc.  You have to be patient.  LOL

By the way juergenbaumbusch.de has exactly the same problems lately. Pages load after several attempts, lots of dropped downloads..

Same symptoms reported in other threads are back.    Page does not load, if able to get into the forums, clicking on a sub-forum may or may not work.

just right now, during "reply to a post" and "send personal message" - a hang, then "can't be done, contact administrator". In 5 minutes works fine
