For at least the past month, I've been having issues with this site almost every day. Sometimes it won't load at all, sometimes it's slow, sometimes I get some kind of error that I'm forbidden to access it, sometimes I get white pages with tons of code, sometimes my alerts won't load. Anybody else having these issues?

Yes, slow to start sometimes is only issue for me.

I have had slow page loads and also the forbidden error at times. Nothing extreme in the frequency of occurrence but definitely happening.

I am home most of the time. I use my laptop and cell phone about 50/50. I use Chrome browser in both laptop and cellphone. The site only seems to start slow sometimes in my cell phone only. So I figured it was my cell phone issue only.

Yes to all except the white pages with code. I don't think I've ever seen that.

I've also noticed uncharacteristic slowness at times over the last several weeks, connecting from home and from work (all via desktop...rarely check-in from other devices), but can't recall any access errors.

I do know one of the CDN servers in Chicago has been having issues off and on

I also noticed that the search database had issues last night and elastic search rebuilt it overnight which is normally CPU intensive.

Earlier in the week the slowdown was caused by me by forgetting to restart the server by applying patches.

But everything appears to be humming along nicely on the server.

If issues continue for the central region then I will try turning off the CDN for a bit. But that will possibly slow down things as all graphics, ccs and Java come from this main server instead of a server close to your area.

For awhile now, I've had where when I send a post to the forum, I see a Blue line going across the top of the screen multiple times till it sends all the way.

I didn't use to see that, I am at 100 mg, I was at 25 mg awhile back and saw it, thought it might go away with the speed increase ... it hasn't, so maybe its something else ...

All other sites are moving along quite well.

Using Chrome btw.

While the site is humming along nicely, I am seeing a few second delay when submitting posts or replies.

I am told this could be caused by the fact we are on old software, and the software we are on now is trying to call an anti spam site before posting which has been up and down / unstable for a few weeks. I am told that server is changed in the newer version of Xenforo.

So another reason to update... Perhaps I will do it on Sunday morning if I get a chance. :)

Lets see if this is better. They had me change the max number of MySQL connections...

Of course it helps when you type correctly in the config file. :(

You know what's running slow for me... and has been really slow for about 2 weeks now... Facebook. The first time I go there it takes almost 20 seconds for the screen to pop up.

It's getting so if you're using a pc you almost have to clear your cache and cookies daily if you want stuff to work right.
