Delays when accessing site
« on: March 28, 2014, 08:56:24 AM »
Starting a couple of days ago, I have noticed occasional slow responses from the web server. I will type "forum.arcanewonders.com" into my address bar or click on a link, and then wait for a good 20-30 seconds before the next page loads. I have noticed this behavior on my work computer, home computer, and phone. This issue is intermittent for me - it doesn't happen on every request.

I still find the site very usable, just an FYI :)

The site is hosted on a shared server and it appears to be under some additional load. Not sure why.

I'll check in with the ISP to see what we can do.

I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

I have gotten this error 3 or 4 times over the last couple of days.

If there is excessive load in their data centre then it will cause that issue. It has been happening a fair bit lately but I am not aware of any overall issue with the database server

Maybe it is due to Laddin and myself  8)

It is on a shared server so who knows what the reason for the problem is. The forum is certainly more popular though. Just not that popular  :)
