Server slow? Having other issues? Report them here!
« on: March 04, 2013, 07:30:20 AM »
Please keep chatter out of this topic. It is only for reporting potential server issues and slowness.
What I need is for you to just post the time (use figures like 1 hour ago, just now, 39 minutes ago, etc so I can collate consistent data). Also state what the issue was. Slow speed, a 500 Internal server error, SMF error page, etc. The more info the better.

I can then collate this so I can give the hosts as much info so I can get them to have a more educated look at what the issue is.

Thanks guys.

Ok, just now I tried to like a post. 30 seconds of working and the like still wouldn't take. So I closed the window, came back and waiting for approx 30 secs, I got a Safari message that the server was not responding. So I closed and tried again, took about 10 seconds to come up. I have this issue with the likes more often than not.

15 minutes or so ago I got "Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later." message. Then it took me that 15 minutes just for the site to load.

While posting this I got a Internal service errors along with a 404 error.

Just a reminder to just post errors here, no discussion Ferg.

About 4 minutes ago I got page cannot be displayed. (Trying to log in.)

It's been like this since Saturday, all the time. There might be a few minutes it works ok, then again server unresponsive, SMF cannot connect to database, server busy or just cannot find page.

Did that have any error numbers (404, 500, etc) or any more info?

Ok, just tried to log out and got this message


Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again.
 

 
Now, it's not logging me out and that is not good.

Just got this: Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to rockstar-forums.net

Then I reloaded, and it worked fine again.

Funny thing is, I was about to ban an adbot when this happened, and when I reloaded, it had substituted the bot's name with mine. Almost banned myself. :[

Not that I recall, sorry.

As a FYI, the forums have worked better today. A little sluggish to start with, but right now fairly quick and ok.

Finn is right, it is running faster today, but I just tried to like something and after trying to load for a while it said Internet Explorer can't display the web page :(

Just got this twice, a few minutes before typing this, and while trying to post:

The web page at http://rockstar-forums.net/index.php might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 103 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_ABORTED): Unknown error.

Could be my connection, but considering how slow the forum's been recently, I'm inclined to believe it's trouble on the host's side.

That might possibly be your browser autofilling fields it thinks its knows. It sees a username field and assumes its a login that you want to do or something similar.

Finn is right, it is running faster today, but I just tried to like something and after trying to load for a while it said Internet Explorer can't display the web page :(

I think the likes might be slow for a while. We're having issues with the AJAX likes. The AJAX likes makes it quicker, but when we enable it we seem to have issues with it resetting the likes to 0, even though the code explicitly states to recalculate them. One of the items I'm trying to troubleshoot.

At a brief glace that looks to be something browser side. It also could be something to do with using Chrome. I've only had a very brief glance but googling that error only brings results about chrome.

I had a couple page cannot be displayed errors around the same time Teigen got his error. Forums were working sluggish around that time, now faster, an hour later.
EDIT: now being slow again, but loading eventually.

Just got a server not found. Other than that, the forums have been working today, slighty sluggish at times, but working.
Yesterday morning/day my time (GMT+2) it was better, then in the evening time it got slower again with load errors occasionally.

..Those darn Americans woke up and jammed the internets!  >:(

This morning has been working fine. I guess we'll see on Saturday if the 'really slow' trend continues then.

Alright, so for a 10-15 minute period prior to me posting this, I could not connect at all. Completely down. Seems like this goes for everyone as there's no one but me here at the time of writing.
