  • Had it for 2 days running, but fine last night.

    When that happens, literally nothing I can do until I wake up and reboot the server manually.

    • Having a lot of lag and errors last few hours.

      • not complaining at all as i think hosting this forum is a tremendous job, but apparently my peak time to be in ukmix is when the site tends to fall (at least lately)... so I wonder Wayne , is this rebooting you need to do something physical, or is a way that someone in another time zone, meainng America or Asia, could be a back up of you so if the site needs this rebooting your back-up could do it?

        • I can’t seem to access the site after about midnight each night. Nothing will load.

            It’s when the backup script runs - typically, the site might go down for around 30 mins. But if the server plays up, it can go down for longer and might not come back up until I manually reboot it.

              Oh ok. It’s just a shame because I haven’t been able to access at all this week from around 12-3 am.

              I know you’re doing everything you can, and I appreciate it. Running or moderating a site like this can sometimes feel like a thankless task, so thank you for all you are doing. I just hope a fix of some sort can be found as it’s when I most like to visit the site.

              • I’ve pushed the automatic backup script back so it runs 3 hours later
                (so between 3-5am U.K. time) - it runs via a cron job so fairly easy to adjust.

                We’ll see how this goes - at least if it the site does go down, I’m more likely to be awake to reboot the server.

                  • I think it must go down regularly around that time because I have frequent issues getting the site to load on my mobile (Australian day time)

                    • Hopefully been a bit better recently now that I’ve adjusted the time? Won’t be to everyone’s liking but in terms of the reducing the total number of people impacted, hopefully better.

                      • For information, the site is currently struggling - I’ve had probably 70+ database errors. I’ll take a look at why when I’m back home but just wanted to share for now in case anyone is wondering.

                        • Downtime at noon on Friday for an hour. When i checked in at same time today it was down again.
                          Hope this isn't going to be a regular occurrence now. Those are the 2 days i tend to post at that time.

                            Hopefully it won’t, but I’m getting some high load notifications from the server - I’m generally around to reboot it so any downtime hopefully won’t be to extensive.

                                • It seems a little glitchy today? I'm unable to edit titles on my threads and the last post display in the forum sections aren't correct.

                                                I know I just sent you this, but for anyone else. This often happens when you have to change your password or any other setting. Here are the steps to resolve.

                                                1. Click your name on the upper right.
                                                2. Select User Settings.
                                                3. Go to the account page.
                                                4. Remove your name from the email address field.
                                                5. Change the posts per page from "Use Forum Default" to "30 posts per page"
                                                6. Click Save.
