Physicforum laggy or non-responsive

    There are often times when physicforums responds very slowly and/or just stops responding for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Is there a server issue with physic forums or is it more likely a problem with my ISP?

    You are posting at a time when we are doing backups. It's a very server intensive process.

    Still having lag issues at this moment (a different tme of day), and sometimes loss of connection, although it's usually back in 30 to 60 seconds now. Still wondering if there's an issue with my ISP or if it's just heavy server load at physicsforums.

    If you are referring to about 10min ago, apache did just crash and I restarted it right away.

    Sorry if you received an "account suspended" message. Apache has been crashing lately and I've been tinkering.

    Greg, somewhere in Venezuela there is a butterfly that had its wings ripped because of this. Chaos theory.

    Shall we start our own little Mathsforums and repopulate the posts?

    I got one, too. "Account suspended" :eek: Why?! Just because I'm cooking a suicidal partridge for supper?

    Donate people, PF needs a new hard drive, a liquid nitrogen cooling system, some margaritas for the sysop, and a lifetime supply of hotpockets for Greg to live down in the basement server room

    I wonder how many members had to be taken to the ER due to this?

    It happens. I assume that the admin uses a service such as Lomag or a similar hosting service. They have issues sometimes, it's just inevitable. It's only time to worry if your host is being DDOS'ed, then someone should be taken to an ER for their own protection. :biggrin:
