Billikens.com Slow - Working on it

Recommended Posts

I am working on trying to address the slowness of Billikens.com.  Apologies for this inconvenience (was not expecting late September to be a high bandwidth day).

Performance mode!

 

Sad reason to need it.....

Performance mode (I think) was removed when we moved from version 3.x to 4.x of the board...I have asked support if there is another way to enable a similar feature...

To reduce the demand on the server, I am restricting forum access to registered users.  This likely doesn't mean much to those reading this (since to read it, you have to be registered).  But there are 100s of "guests" trying to access Billikens.com right now.

Well...125 people registered yesterday....Thats a record.

We are currently on a temporarily upgraded server (thanks web host)!  But we will likely have to be move again sometime in the next couple of days.

In the process of trying to get the forum to run faster, I upgraded a PHP setting.  In doing so, I broke a 10 year old script that posted latest topics on the front page.  This may not get fixed for a few days as work is pretty busy right now.  Apologies.

Thanks for your patience.

For a small update, we are now back on a slightly slower server than we had been for the last week (we temporarily upgraded for the spike in traffic).

It is very likely we will move to another server over the weekend.  So there may be some downtime.

As we all know computers and servers are temperamental and have behavioral quirks. You are doing all you can to solve the issue, that is all we can ask for.

We are now on a new server.  Let me know if you experience problems.

Thanks for the feedback.  It works for me both at work and on my phone.  It may be taking some time for the DNS to be updating on your computer - but it is odd you can access the message board but not the home page.

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

The welcome page doesn’t work.

My phone was doing this too last week.  It started working again after a couple days.
