Post Board down

In the last couple of days, the board has been down quite often. Any problems or was it scheduled?

Two more gaps of 3h (total) today. Problem on my end?

I only get the "This board is currently disabled" message at the top of the forum every now and then but it seems to be working.
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?

It's been down most of the day for me, with the message that WarK mentioned.

Same issue. Was down for at least a couple hours.

Apologies for the late response. I'll check what's going on this afternoon and report back.

Post Re: Board down

I've found nothing in the logs, either from the site or the host, but I've sent them an email just in case. I've updated our version of PHP (the forum software is already up to date) on the off-chance that there might be an issue there.

There's always a chance that you might have to hard-refresh your browser's cache with an F5 (or CTRL+F5 maybe?) if you experience it over a longer period.

Keep me posted ;)

Post Re: Board down

I've only had it in the past couple of days, never before that. Twice today, a few times each day over the weekend.

I always refresh with the refresh-sign in Firefox, does that make a difference? I'll try F5 next time.
Basically I try the site, "there's currently no board" message pops up, I wait for 30min or so and try again.

So this seems different from what I saw. I saw the message "This board is currently disabled" but I still could see all the forums, topics and posts and I think I made my earlier post in this topic while the message was still up. Maybe we saw different things because we are in different user groups?

F5 in Firefox is the same as the reload icon. Ctrl+F5 does refresh and also skips browser's cache so it fetches all the files like images straight from the server and not from browser's cache.

Post Re: Board down

Interesting, that's a message I've never seen.
Also yesterday, I got the message that the server was down, another entirely new experience for me. Was that due to the PHP update?

However, I noticed one other site not working for me yesterday, so I'm beginning to think it's something on my end?!

Then it is my end too, because yesterday I got a server timeout, plus the message the board was down check back in a few minutes. My cache is deleted when I close my browser and after I do that I still get the message. So, not sure what is up.

Post Re: Board down

The board was down when I was doing updates (mods and above could still access the site), but there's been nothing else as far as I can tell. I've increased the load to see if that solves the issue. Will check back this eve.

Post Re: Board down

Haven't had a single second of downtime in the last two days, so either you made it work or my internet started working again. Whichever it is, it's all good now.

Once again many thanks.

I thought I'd posted a response to this last week... Sorry, yeah. All seems well.

Or maybe you did post a response last week - which has been lost...

Are you sure all is well?? ;)

Kindest regards,
