Blessed be the one(s) who did the server upgrade/switch.

Now I can make a click and something useful happens XD

I'm still getting intermittent "SMF cannot connect to database" errors, but things are definitely better.

Well it was good while it lasted ...



And for the Playground:



I hope they bought a LOT bigger server. Once speeds pick up, people will post more queries. It's like freeways (motorways) ... once you build them they fill up.

(This was yesterday, I couldn't even make this posting last night, it just timed out).

So basically we are getting more than we payed for!

It'll be fixed when they upgrade the UNO to a MEGA2560  :smiley-roll-blue:

I made a blog post explaining everything happening with the server recently:

Sluggish as hell out here, takes 20 to 30 seconds easily for a page to load

Still see a lot of slowness simply browsing the site.  The occasional timeouts still occur.  Specific to this site as everything else everywhere works just fine.

I see we're crawling again today.  Page loads taking upwards of 30 seconds.  It took about a minute for this reply form to come up ... let's see how long it takes to actually post.

KirAsh4,

i'm looking the forum right now, and it seems responsive (about 2/3 seconds max to load pages). Sometime happens that a page takes a little more to load (anyway under 10 secs), but, in my case, are sporadic events. So without other help i cant really help you to find the reason for the slowness.

Can you check with some tools, like firebug, what are the server requests that takes long time to load?

It seems erratic. Right now it's fine. Last night (my time - about 12 hours ago) I couldn't post at all for an hour. I contacted Massimo who said that "there was and extra issue due to two backups happening at the same time and that made the database unavailable for a bit".

This morning while I was making breakfast I got the same message "Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.". After breakfast it seems nice and fast.

You could talk to Massimo.

Yeah, it seems a sporadic thing.  I gave up after posting that message and just now came back.  It's loading fine now.  Firebug won't help here because it's not even getting data back from the server, it just sits there waiting for a response.  Once data starts flowing, it's a quick thing.  To me this points to network issues, which isn't necessarily he server.  It could be the upstream host.  I'll start running traces when I see network crawls, see if we can figure out where it's happening.

However, Nick's error messages are more specific to the server and connecting to the DB itself.
