Any news Paul? Things seem to be getting worse, the site's been breaking down every 20 minutes or so today.
Good luck with it anyway.

The constant breakdown of the search function is the biggest issue for me. I can deal with the site going down occasionally, all sites do. I just go do something else for a while. But it's pretty tough dealing with not having a search function for weeks at a time.

I asked a similar question together with "why did we originally move over here?" and don't remember an answer. If the new provider is cheaper than the one we were on before, it seems rather obvious why.

Although it hasn't been occasional today. It's down, then up, then down quicker than a tarts drawers.
Infact it crashed again as I was posting this!

We just moved to a different plan at the same provider, as it worked out better for our bandwidth needs. Unfortunately this meant moving to another server at the provider, and that one seemed to be the cause of our problems.

As for today's issues, there's been some problems with some inter-ISP traffic, causing connections into our server (and many others scattered across the UK) to be lost. Users of some ISPs will be affected, whilst others will see no issues.

Struggling again today, some pages taking minutes to upload.

Yeah, it's really bad today.

So are we without the search function for the time being, or does it work on some ISPs but not others, or is it still an ongoing problem?

I'll get the search fixed once all performance problems go away.

I've no idea as to what caused today's issue; I wasn't here at the time to monitor it.

I think I've finally got to the bottom of the problems we've been experiencing. See the sticky thread for details.

For the 2nd day running, attempting to post a post with a few links, more than one YouTube video or anything else much beyond a little bit of text seems to be triggering a 403, followed by an IP based timeout.

Which is how all the problems started last time.

Can't they disconnect their (frankly, utterly fucking shit) spam filter on this server?

Same here. A minor inconvenience at the very most, but it is strange.

Hmm .... I'm getting it too. Only a minor problem, but I thought I'd let everyone know

I've fixed it.

Worringly this is the third table that's become damaged in under 24 hours. I'll log a support call as it shouldn't be happening at all.

Anyone else getting the 403 forbidden errors again?

Anything with a couple of lines, fine. Stuff with a couple of pics, or a pic and more than about a paragraph of text, bang, forbidden.

Shit fucking host.

I'm getting those "403 forbidden" errors too now.
