approx 6am access problem

Post by glossieblack » Mon Jun 26, 2017 5:51 am

Just curious. Recently I've been fairly regularly finding that if I try to log into the forum after our evening meal, or around your 6am, access is not available. Are you backing up or doing something else around then?

Glossieblack, thank you for the note. Yes, this issue has been a problem for a while now and although we have researched every angle we still cannot find where the delay is coming from. We are sure it is a down load or something similar as it happens almost at the same time every morning. Sorry for the delays it has created!! We will continue to work this until we get it resolved!!

General Error

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
I'm seeing this error consistently around 8am EDT.

Marshall, Yes and thank you for the note. We have had this issue for some time now but it was creating the issue between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM EST. It has now moved to about 8:15 to 9:15 AM EST. Jamie has worked on this for months but we can't find the crawler that is slowing/stopping access to the forum!! We will continue to work on it and I do watch it every morning!! Jeff

Jeff/Jamie, do you know the useragent or an ip address? You can try apache access controls to hard deny. Alternatively you can limit number of connections from a client using iptable or a few "non-apache" apache module. Not knowing how comfortable you all are with this kind of thing I'm hesitant to recommend a specific solution though.

Jaysen, I will make sure Jamie reads your comments as I am completely out of touch with most things called "software"!! Jeff

Just do not let in creep past 10-1030 your time. At that point it would be screwing with MY morning routine :lol:

Jeff, I haven't experienced the problem recently. Random luck, or have you found a fix?
