    PF Server Slow -- Sunday 8-Feb 2PM PST

    Starting at about 2PM today, the PF server has been very slow, including some Database Error timeouts. Seems to be improving a bit (3PM), but still may require a server re-boot.

    FYI.

    Wonder if its something to do with a new record being set for the number of users online?

    I'm still getting occassional db errors when clicking on a link to most of the forums.

    And PF is loading slowly, even after clean files/cache etc.

    autolinking

    Autolinking (to the PF Library) is not working.

    Has it been turned off to help the server?

    yeah I turn it off if the server is hurting, I'll put it back on when we have some stability back
